Notes:

Born in Zweibrucken, Germany. Two-way lineman who was one of Virginia’s best shot putters as a prep. Redshirted in 2007 and saw action in three games as a true freshman in ’08, including his first career start in the Orange Bowl. Started all 41 games at right guard over his final three seasons — 13 in ’09, 14 in ’10 and 14 in ’11.

Positives:

Has natural leverage. Gets into blocks urgently. Sound hand placement and short-area lateral movement. Bends at the knees and moves his feet to stay in the way. Can work his hips and position himself to seal. Agile enough to short-pull and is efficient to the second level. Aware to see and react. Competes and gives consistent effort. Plays with some nasty and likes to finish. Tough and durable. Experienced, three-year starter. 

Negatives:

Lacks ideal height and has pedestrian length. Plays short-armed and does not use his hands violently. Average base strength and body control — could stand to improve sustain. Occasionally lets his pads rise and negates his power. Does not generate explosion through his lower body/hips to reestablish the line in the run game. Is at a disadvantage when facing size/power (struggled matching up with North Carolina DE Quinton Coples). Split time with younger players. 

Summary:

Adequate-sized, thick-bodied, competitive zone blocker who’s at his best when he bends, plays with leverage and is able to seal and work angles. Has the temperament, smarts, experience and functional strength to stick and could potentially move to center.
