Scouting Report:

The Good:   Tough, intelligent lineman that's been productive the past two seasons.  Blocks with an exceptionally wide base, strong at the point of attack and turns opponents out, creating openings for the running game.  Keeps his feet moving in pass protection, works to stay square and jolts defenders with his hands, anchoring at the point.  Easily sustains his blocks once engaged with the opponent.  

The Bad:  Not quick off the snap, bends at the waist and stiff in his upper body.  Minimal skills on the second level.  Has good athletic numbers but does not always show it on the field.  

The Skinny:   Growth potential, feel for the position and work ethic all gives him a good shot at the next level and a solid second day choice.
