Notes:

Married and has a daughter. His brother-in-law is Baltimore Ravens DE Paul Kruger, a former Ute. Tony also earned letters in basketball (three) and track (two) at Skyline High in Utah. After graduating high school in 2005, went on LDS church mission. At Utah in 2008, appeared in 10 games, drawing one start at left tackle. Did not play against Michigan, Air Force or Oregon State (coach’s decision). Started all 26 games at right tackle the next two seasons, grading out at 81 percent in ’09 and 83 percent in ’10 when he did not allow a sack. Made 12 starts at right tackle in ’11 and graded out at a team-best 85 percent. Missed most of the Brigham Young game and did not play against Washington with a knee injury. Turns 26 in early August. Team captain.

Positives:

Sets quickly in pass pro. Flashes an effective short punch. Good balance and lateral agility. Can shuffle, slide and shift his weight in short area. Good mobility to pull and initiate contact on linebackers. Smart and aware to handle line stunts. Gives consistent effort. Tough, durable three-year starter. Is coachable and takes pride in his craft. Well-respected vocal leader.

Negatives:

Tends to play very upright (and showed that in Combine workout). Length and foot quickness are just adequate for the outside. Small hands. Needs to get stronger. Average base — gets walked back and struggles to re-anchor. Inconsistent initial contact (needs to improve hand placement). Plays short-armed (average sustain). Does not generate power through his lower body and is not a physical finisher. Overaged.

Summary:

Good-sized, experienced, versatile, bump-and-steer blocker. Is best-suited at left guard in a zone scheme, although he possesses the smarts and versatility to serve as an emergency backup tackle. Improved as a senior and reminds evaluators of former Ute and Broncos 2010 second-rounder Zane Beadles.
