    Strong Points: Natural size and length with growth potential to 315 -320 pounds. Dominated D-II competition and had a strong week of practice at the East-West Shrine Game. Bend, quick feet and change of direction. Strong punch in pass protection. Competitive -- always looking to finish. Flashes strong run-blocking ability. Powerful through his hips.

    Weak Points: Low level of competition. Fared well in East-West practices, but he struggled in the game. Wide speed and counter moves give Pipkins problems. Will the NFL game be too fast for him? Not a technician with his hands.

    The Way We See It: A dominant player from a low level of competition, Pipkins has the natural size and athleticism to play in the NFL, but he is very raw. He still needs to get bigger and stronger in order to compete with NFL-caliber players. Pipkins likely is still a year away and will require time to learn on the practice squad. Pipkins' East-West practices displayed his upside, but the game showed how far away he is from reaching it. Interesting developmental prospect who could get drafted higher than his tape shows because of his natural traits.
