Notes:

Last name is pronounced “luh-REE-bus.” The Texas prep made six pancake blocks per game as a senior. Redshirted in 2007. Saw action in 10 games in ’08, making starts at right guard against Texas State and Memphis. In ’09, he started all 13 contests at left guard for a team that set the school record with 5,093 yards of total offense. Was ruled academically ineligible for the ’10 season and worked on the scout team. Lost 70 pounds between December of 2010 and the end of spring practice in ’11 and made all 13 starts at left guard in the fall.

Positives:

Functional run blocker — gets in the way and works to position and sustain. Good weight-room strength and 20-yard short-shuttle time (4.67 seconds). Tough competitor. 

Negatives:

Stiff, try-hard, limited athlete. Is tightly wound. Plodder. Has a dumpy-looking physique. Appears stiff in space. Struggles to adjust to movement in pass protection. Hand use is inconsistent — shows little pop or power in his hands. Not explosive.  

Summary:

Tough, competitive, try-hard, bump-and-steer blocker with potential to be tried as a center. Emerged with a solid senior season and has a chance to develop.
