He sits really upright in pass protection, with his right leg significantly behind him in order to quickly set. Lacks the natural range to reach the corner and doesn't stay compact/balanced with his footwork when trying to reach speed. He gets upright initially off the football and just slides his feet laterally.
He also struggles to stay balanced and redirect with much quickness, and will be really susceptible initially to the bull rush into contact.
He's a heavy handed guy who sticks well through contact, but he doubles over at the waist when looking to engage, struggles to keep his base down and feet under him and lacks much shuffle and slide ability.
Is a naturally strong kid with some lower body strength through contact in the run game, but his lack of overall flexibility in his lower half takes away from his initial snap off the ball.
He gets upright initially and doesn't generate much of a pop/leverage for himself at the point. He stands upright initially before engaging and, despite his lower power and heavy hands, he doesn't get nearly the movement his skill set should allow him to.
He's heavy handed, sticks to blocks initially and can get a slight push because of his natural power, but he doesn't gain leverage, rolls over his knees and ends up on the ground too quickly.
Has some short area quickness off the snap when asked to step and seal, but isn't the athlete who can consistently get out on the edge, breakdown and chop down defenders in space.
Impression: Isn't a natural bender and is going to have a tough time winning consistently in either the run or pass game at the next level."
Steady, sound pass blocker — runs rushers wide and can shuffle, slide and mirror to maintain positioning.
Uses his hands well, showing an effective initial punch and the ability to pop and recoil.
Average athletic ability and power — cannot blow people off the ball and could be stressed by size.
Lacks the length (short arms) and foot quickness to consistently handle edge speed, but is a scrapper with starter-caliber ability at left guard in a zone scheme.
Accountable, well-respected, character player with leadership traits."
Does have some short-area quickness, but is stiff and not very agile and struggles to cut the edge off against fast outside rushers; in fact, could be best suited to playing a power OG at the next level;
Missed two games in 2008 with and a bruised kidney and one in 2009 with an ankle injury, but otherwise is a durable, well-conditioned athlete who more often than not plays every snap with the Hokies."
