Notes:

Averaged a double-double in basketball as a Texas prep. Redshirted in 2007. Started every game at left tackle for the past four seasons — 12 games in ’08; 13 games in ’09; 14 games in ’10 and 13 contests in ’11. Has graduated and is working on his master’s degree.

Positives:

Plays hard and competes. Can shuffle and slide and mirror (as evidenced in mirror drills and better-than-average agility times at the Combine). Experienced four-year starter. Alert eyes and blitz recognition. Competes hard and will seek to finish. Flashes some nasty. Good effort and intensity. 

Negatives:

On the short side and lacks ideal arm length. Bench-pressed 225 pounds only 19 times at the Combine and needs to get physically stronger. Played in a pass-heavy offense and has limited run-blocking experience. Can be exposed in space — struggles to hit a moving target. Can improve hand placement.

Summary:

High-cut, underdeveloped, college left tackle who lacks ideal length and foot quickness for the edges and needs to get functionally stronger to survive on the inside. Has backup potential as a positional blocker on the inside for a zone-slide protection scheme.
