Notes:

Was an all-state tight end as a Georgia prep, in addition to punting, playing linebacker and basketball. Attended Coffeyville (Kan.) Community College for two seasons (2008-09), playing tight end and defensive tackle. Redshirted in ’08. In ’09, earned all-conference honors as a tight end after catching 12 passes for 229 yards (19.1-yard average) and two touchdowns. As a defensive tackle, totaled 35 tackles, four tackles for loss and 11⁄2 sacks. Signed with Auburn and was moved to the offensive line during spring practice in ’10. Played in all 14 games in the fall and started the final 11 games at right tackle. Also filled in at left tackle against Mississippi State after Carolina Panthers 2011 seventh-rounder Lee Ziemba was injured. Began the ’11 season by making three starts at left tackle before moving back to right tackle, where he was more comfortable, for the remaining 10 starts.

Positives:

Has long arms to gain extension and tie up defenders and large, strong hands he uses actively. Competitive, aggressive playing temperament — seeks to punish defenders. Nice athletic ability. Engages quickly and plays on his feet. Mirrors in pass protection. Understands positioning and angles. Climbs to the second level efficiently and can trap and pull and get out in space. Has played on both sides of the line. Good character — dependable, hardworking and passionate about the game. 

Negatives:

Needs to get functionally stronger — is light in the pants, tends to play upright and struggles matching up with power. Average explosion and hip snap. Technique is still a work in progress — opens the gate and needs to learn to drop his anchor and dig in. Lunges, bends at the waist and slips off blocks. Was ineffective at left tackle.

Summary:

Athletic, inconsistent, blue-collar converted tight end who did not take his game to the next level as a senior, but has upside worth investing in. At worst, should develop into a versatile, swing backup, but has starter potential as a right tackle if he’s able to make strength gains.
