Notes:

Played left tackle as an Illinois prep before committing to UM and then-head coach Lloyd Carr. Redshirted in 2007. Started all 12 games at center in ’08. Made four starts in ’09 — suffered a broken left foot against Eastern Michigan that cost him four games, then returned against Penn State and suffered a season-ending torn right ACL. Was a Rimington Trophy finalist in ’10 after starting all 13 games. Won the Rimington Award and was named the Big Ten’s Lineman of the Year in ’11, playing in all 13 games with 12 starts. Was injured during pregame warmups for the Sugar Bowl and did not play the first series. Team captain. Medically excluded from running or jumping at the Combine with a right knee injury.

Positives:

Scrappy competitor who plays with urgency and is aggressive coming off the ball. Good foot energy and on-field playing temperament. Solid base, balance and body control — is seldom on the ground. Exceptional weight-room strength — bench-pressed 225 pounds 41 times at the Combine, second-best among all attendees. Solid team player. Vocal leader. Makes all the line calls. Football-smart and savvy. Quick learner. Good with ethic. 

Negatives:

Is short, lacks ideal girth and does not have a frame to support much additional growth. Not well-suited to match up vs. massive two-gappers. Not an explosive drive blocker who generates movement with his lower body. Struggles to handle and adjust to speed on the second level. Average hand strength. Durability has been an issue.

Summary:

Feisty, undersized, highly competitive, smart pivot ideally suited for a zone-blocking scheme. Lack of size girth always could present some trouble against size, but can win with quickness, angles and intelligence and has starter potential.
