Notes:

First name is pronounced “ro-KEY-v-us.” Prepped in Georgia and spent two years (2007-08) at Georgia Military College. Redshirted in 2009. Started all 14 games in ’10 — 12 at left guard, two at right guard. Sprained his right shoulder against Furman. Started all 13 games in ’11, and proved to be very versatile — started the first five games at right tackle, the next seven at left tackle and the final contest at right guard. Was medically excluded from the Combine with a right wrist injury. 

Positives:

Very long arms with natural girth. Good foot quickness and agility for a big man. Natural knee bender. Solid pass protector. Flashes a strong punch. Good functional base strength. Can position and wall off defenders. Versatile — has played inside and outside. 

Negatives:

Fleshy-bodied, pear-shaped and smooth-muscled — carries man-boobs. Does not play strong or physical. Average range. Late to read and react to what he sees. Has a soft playing temperament. Average football intelligence. Really struggled to protect the edge vs. Arkansas’ Jake Bequette. Weight has fluctuated and pushed 360 pounds upon his arrival at South Carolina. Immature.

Summary:

Finesse, big-bodied, versatile positional blocker with the mass, arm length and athletic ability to plug in at multiple positions. Has eventual starter potential if he figures out what it means to be a pro and continues to work in the weight room.
