The California prep, who originally committed to UCLA, redshirted his first season at Stanford in 2008. Started 11-of-13 contests in ’09 (did not start against Arizona or Arizona State) at left tackle and protected the blind side of QB Andrew Luck. Made starts in the first six games and the final five games while being part of an offensive line that allowed a league-low seven sacks and paved the way for a school-record 2,837 rushing yards. Started all 26 games at left tackle and anchored an offensive line that allowed only 18 sacks over his last two seasons (2010-11). Was helped off the field in the third quarter vs. USC with a right knee injury after getting beat but returned to the game. Only performed skill drills at the Combine because of undisclosed illness.Positives:
Good size and arm length. Fairly athletic and can shuffle, slide and wall off zones. Nice knee bend. Plays on his feet with good balance. Plays with very good awareness and keeps his head on a swivel. Gets positioning and sticks to defenders — gives good effort and consistently sustains. Is well-versed in a pro-style offense.Negatives:
Lacks functional strength and can be walked back in pass protection. Not explosive off the ball and does not drive defenders. Soft anchor. Bends at the waist and overextends. Average foot quickness and coordination for the left side — needs to improve kick-slide quickness. Raw technician. Struggles sustaining on the second level. Questionable toughness. Was exposed by the speed of USC’s Nick Perry — heaviness in movement really shows.Summary:
Overhyped developmental project who needs to get stronger and lacks ideal foot quickness and agility for the left side in the pros. Can develop into a solid swing tackle, but would be best beginning his career on the right side and will take time to adapt to the NFL game. Will appeal most to teams employing zone-slide protection schemes and is a prime candidate to be considerably overdrafted.
