Father, Jim, played baseball for Army in the early 1970s. Paul played offensive line and defensive end as a Minnesota prep. Also lettered in track and field. Redshirted in 2007 and saw action in eight games as a reserve lineman in ’08. Played in all 11 games in ’09, making his first career start against Northern Iowa, despite dealing with a herniated disc (L5-S1) in his back all year. Made all 14 starts in ’10 — started the first two games at right tackle and the final 12 at right guard. Started all 15 games for the FCS national champions in ’11, grading out at 96.5 percent with 102 knockdown blocks and allowed only one sack. Team captain. Medically excluded from running at the Combine with a lumbar spine injury.Positives:
Excellent body, arm length. Good body control and balance — plays on his feet. Latches on and can shuffle, mirror and gain positioning. Plays hard and competes. Has a blue-collar work ethic and solid overall character. Versatile and has played guard and tackle.Negatives:
Too much body stiffness, from his ankles through his hips and torso. Sets tall and plays very upright (and might not be correctable given back injury). Underdeveloped body with limited lower-body strength. Flat-assed and does not play with any power or leverage. Marginal anchor strength. Limited athletically. Faced marginal competition.Summary:
Tall, upright, limited developmental backup with intriguing measurables that do not excite on tape given his injury history, strength deficiency and body stiffness. Might serve as a backup right tackle only, limiting his appeal.
