Weight: 330 lbs.
Strengths: Huge, massive, thick-legged individual. Also has surprising quickness for his size. Quick off the snap and has good explosion to get to the second level. Agile. With his size and strength, he easily plows most opponents. Plays with excellent leverage. Also very durable and reliable.
Weaknesses: Doesn't keep his feet moving. While locked in battle, he just kind of anchors down and expects that his overwhelming size and strength will enable him to fend off defenders without repositioning. This must be corrected to have success against NFL athletes. While quick enough to get to the second level on time, he's not very balanced and has a lot of trouble getting his huge body to change direction quickly. Not much with moving targets.
Bottom Line: Started 42 games as one of the best G's in the ACC. Perhaps the most accomplished G in this draft.
Has a good reputation and an excellent NFL build. However, his technique is lacking. Will need to work on technique to become a complete G. Naturally gifted G and he knows it. Only issue is relying on those natural gifts too much. Will have to prove himself against the much better players in the NFL.
Projected Round: 2-3
