Notes:

The Missouri prep played in only three games as a senior because of a broken toe. Redshirted in 2007. Saw action in seven games as a reserve offensive lineman in ’08. Was suspended for the ’09 season for a violation of team rules. Started 10-of-14 games in which he played at left tackle in ’10, recording 103 knockdown blocks. Started all 13 games at left tackle in ’11.

Positives:

Very good athlete with outstanding arm length and good feet to shuffle, slide and cut off the corner in pass protection (even if he does not always use it). Clocked the best 40-time (4.98 seconds) among offensive tackles and the best vertical jump (351⁄2 inches) of any offensive lineman at the Combine.

Negatives:

Soft playing disposition and on-field temperament. Average hand use — too often catches and lets defenders into his body. Does not play with power or physicality. Weight-room numbers do not consistently correlate to the field. Undisciplined off the field. Average anchor strength. Needs to spend more time in the weight room — bench-pressed 225 pounds only 19 times. Can do a better job finishing blocks. Is only a one-year full-time starter. 

Summary:

A highly athletic, undisciplined college left tackle who waited until his senior season for the light to flicker and opened some eyes at the Combine. Has clear starting-caliber athletic traits, but must prove that he is willing to work, commit himself to the game and will not cash out mentally after a big pay day. Developmental zone blocker.
