Prospect Profile: Joshua Bourke

Joshua Bourke School: Grand Valley State
Ht: 6-6 Wt: 300 40: 5.21 Year: 5Sr

Bio: Three-year starter who's held down the right tackle position since his sophomore season.

Positives: Quick-footed, pass-blocking tackle with nice size. Immediately gets off the snap, quick pulling across the line of scrimmage and possesses solid footwork sliding off the edge. Picks up stunts or twists thrown by defenders, keeps his feet moving throughout the action, and works hard until the whistle blows. Adjusts and redirects to linebackers on the second level. Knee bender who plays with excellent forward lean.

Negatives: Average strength at the point of attack and has difficulty moving linebackers out of the action. Must do a better job extending his hands and keeping defenders away.

Analysis: A lineman who flashes ability, Bourke possesses the size to develop into a backup at either tackle position if he commits himself to football.
