Notes:

Also participated in basketball and track and field as a Florida prep. Redshirted in 2007. Started 46 consecutive games at left tackle (all 12 in 2008, ’09 and ’10 and the first 10 games in ’11) before suffering an avulsion fracture of his right shoulder against Virginia in mid-November and needing season-ending surgery. Team captain.

Positives:

Good length. Nice patience and balance in pass protection — extends to protect his frame. Functional to slide and mirror. Can work his hips around and seal defensive ends. Plays hard. Smart and tough. Durable four-year starter. Solid personal and football character. Good work ethic.

Negatives:

Needs to improve his upper-body strength. Average athletic ability, foot quickness and physicality. At times plays tall and narrow-based and could struggle vs. power. Not a sudden mover. Does not roll his hips and explode through contact. 

Summary:

Experienced, competitive, positional blocker with an average overall skill set. Needs to improve his functional strength, though he has positive intangibles and could be a practice-squad candidate capable of growing into a solid backup. Might need to kick inside.
