Notes:

His brother, Toby, was a Heisman Trophy finalist as a running back at Stanford and plays for the Minnesota Vikings. Garth played for his father as a California prep while also playing baseball. Redshirted in 2007. Saw action in six contests in ’08, starting the final three games at left guard, and also played center. Made his collegiate debut against his brother and Stanford. Appeared in eight games in ’09, making five starts at right guard and two at center. Missed four games early in the season because of turf toe on his left foot. Started all 25 games at center the past two seasons (12 starts in ’10 and 13 in ’11). Team captain.

Positives:

Good arm length and weight-room strength. Has a strong lower body and good base. Flashes a substantial punch. Works to position and get in the way. Smart and aware. Tough and competitive. Good character. Dependable, blue-collar worker. Experienced, three-year starter. Has NFL bloodlines. 

Negatives:

Has a maxed out frame. Fringe athletic ability. Tightly wound. Average snap-and-step quickness. Lunges and slips off blocks. Not explosive on contact. Can be outquicked and outmaneuvered by three-techniques. Limited blocking range. Struggles connecting with moving targets. Center only. Limited upside.

Summary:

Thick, squatty, left-handed, bump-and-steer short-area blocker who lacks exceptional traits for the pro game and has to be sound technically to survive.
