Notes:

Also participated in basketball and track as a Mississippi prep. Graded out at 93 percent with 24 pancake blocks as senior. Redshirted in 2007. Started all 37 games along the offensive line during his first three seasons — 12 games at right tackle in ’08; 12 games at left guard in ’09; and 13 contests (11 at right guard and two at center) in ’10. Continued his starting streak in ’11, starting all 13 contests — four of the first five games at center and nine of the final 10 at right guard.

Positives:

Has good size and is well put together. Quick out of his stance. Good feet and active hands. Can shuffle and mirror inside. Understands positioning and angles. Smart and aware. Pulls with speed and conviction and zeroes in on targets. Plays with vinegar — consistent effort and intensity. Tough, durable four-year starter. Versatile — played four different spots. Outstanding personal and football character — accountable, well-respected, passionate leader by example.

Negatives:

Adequate length. Not exceptionally strong or explosive. Does not play with pop in his hands. Average balance and sustain — at times lunges and falls off blocks. Struggles to generate movement in the run game (limited power). Struggled in head-to-head confrontations with elite talent, including Detroit Lions 2010 first-rounder Nick Fairley and LSU’s Michael Brockers. Too effort-reliant. 

Summary:

Scrappy, competitive, athletic, experienced interior blocker whose functional strength leaves something be desired. Projects best at center in the pros, although his versatility, intangibles and playing temperament could make him a valuable swing interior backup.
