Notes:

Also earned a pair of track and field letters as a California prep. Spent 2008-09 at Fullerton (Calif.) College. Was highly recruited before choosing the Utes and starting all 12 games in which he played at left tackle in ’10, replacing Denver Broncos 2010 second-rounder Zane Beadles. Missed the Poinsettia Bowl against Boise State because of a broken wrist. Changed jersey from No. 75 to No. 77 as a senior. In ’11, made the final 12 starts of the season at left tackle and graded out at 82 percent. Missed the season opener against Montana State with a concussion.

Positives:

Good feet. Loose out of his stance — sets with quickness, patience and balance. Keeps his hands inside and maintains positioning. Mobile and agile to pull and work to the second level. Good character — coachable, team-first attitude.

Negatives:

Length is just average and lacks ideal height and bulk. Limited anchor strength. Adequate athletic ability and flexibility. Marginal hip snap — does not generate power on contact or generate movement in the run game. Was stressed by the speed and strength of USC DE Nick Perry. Cut blocking needs work. Intermittent intensity. Still learning how to study the game and apply it to the field.

Summary:

Lean, finesse college left tackle who lacks ideal athletic ability and arm length for the outside and core strength for the inside. Developmental zone blocker who could require patience adapting to the pro game.
