Notes:

three years on the offensive line (center and tackle) and two years as a defensive lineman and led his team to the state title as junior. Also lettered in basketball and track. Redshirted in 2007 and saw action in four games as a reserve left guard in ’08. Appeared in four games in ’09, starting the season opener against Northern Iowa at left guard, then played a reserve role the rest of the season. Saw action in only seven contests in ’10. Missed the first two games after injuring his ankle in fall camp, returned to play in the next six games — including starts at right guard against Wisconsin and Michigan State — before suffering another ankle injury and missing four contests. Returned to play in the Insight Bowl against Missouri. Started all 13 games at right guard in ’11. Opted not to bench-press at the Combine because of a strained right pectoral muscle.

Positives:

Quick out of his stance. Athletic. Has good upper-body strength to absorb an initial charge and works to re-anchor. Can work his hips and seal running lanes. Good lateral agility to shuffle and mirror. Quick to the second level and coordinated to initiate contact. Log-rolls defenders. Competitive playing temperament — plays through the whistle and works to finish. Has upside. Exceptional Combine tester — produced rare 10-yard splits (1.69 seconds).  

Negatives:

Needs to bulk up and get stronger, particularly in his base. Can do a better job sitting down in pass protection — tends to rise, get straight-legged and slip off blocks. Is not equipped to fire off flat-backed, roll his hips and reestablish the line of scrimmage in the run game. Limited starting experience. Lacks ideal size and durability could be an issue. 

Summary:

An undersized, competitive, athletic one-year starter who played his way into draft consideration as a senior. Showed well against top competition and should continue improving with increased strength development. Would be best in a zone scheme.
