LeRibeus is not as athletic as the prototypical Shanahan offensive lineman. He generally looks for linemen who run the 40 in the 5.0-second range. LeRibeus ran it in 5.37 at the combine.

He also practiced as the backup center at SMU and Shanahan has said that position flexibility will help players make the team.
