    Strong Points: Started six games as a true freshman at Stanford. Very tough and physical player who always looks to finish. Strong and very competitive. Gets movement with run blocks. Good hand use -- keeps them inside. Mirrors and anchors well in pass pro. Can get to second level. Might be able to play center. Accomplished student.

    Weak Points: Need verified measurables, as he looks a little short and might have shorter arms. Does not consistently stay on his feet. Because of his size, he might not time well.

    The Way We See It: A true junior, Herbig became a starter midway through his freshman year.. He's big, strong, tough and productive. Goes after his opponent every play, always looking to finish. Legitimate tough guy on the field. Plays a consistent game as both a run and pass blocker. Not fast, but he is an efficient athlete who can get out in space and adjust on the move. Looks like he could also play center -- and that might be his best position at the next level. Will challenge to start as a rookie in the right situation. Verified measurables and workout will be important to determine draft slot but looks like a solid third-rounder. Could out-play his draft status.
