Agile with reasonably quick nimble feet... Good initial quickness, sets up quickly... Good body control... Quick kick step... Good lateral movement and slide... Good blocking range... Does a real good job mirroring defenders... Solid run blocker... Very good short area quickness... Carries his pads well... Does a good job bringing his feet along with him... Gets into defenders quickly... Solid strength at POA... Good quick punch... Can get to the second level... Reasonably good flexibility and COD... Does a nice job blocking in space... Plays with good balance... Tough... Works hard to finish blocks... Can play Left Tackle but is a perfect fit as a Right Tackle in ZBS, similar in many ways to Houston's Eric Winston.
Negatives: A little thin, needs to add 12-15 lbs... Needs to improve his footwork, especially when re-setting against speed rushers... Not real strong or powerful... Needs to improve lower body strength... Doesn't hold up especially well to bull rushers, can be knocked off balance... Will occasionally reach or lean on the edge versus good speed...

(January 17, GBNReport.com) --
Auburn has announced that junior WR Darvin Adams has applied to the NFL to enter the 2011 draft. Adams led the Tigers in receiving this past season
when he had 52 catches for almost a 1,000 yards and seven TDs.
Underclassmen had until Saturdayís deadline to apply for early entry to the draft, but names are still dribbling out as no one is obliged to actually make an announcement at that time.
