Chris Hairston - Clemson (HT: 6-6⅜ - WT: 333)
Combine 40: N/A - Pro Day 40: N/A - Position Rank: 10 of 20

Positives: Reasonably athletic... Versatile... Very solid pass blocker... Quick pass set... Good length and reasonably long arms... Good hand placement... Adequate knee bend... Solid anchoring strength... Nice lateral movement and slide... Adequate short area flexibility and quickness... Can get good positioning, walls-off reasonably well... Good run blocker... Plays with good base and low center of gravity... Can generate reasonably good power... Plays with solid leverage... Can get movement in the running game... Can control his man once locked on... Can pull, can get to the second level... Reasonably good motor, steady, reliable... Generally stays with his blocks but isn't an especially good finisher... Flashes a mean streak.

Negatives: Gets too upright in pass protection, rises up almost instantly into his stance... Will bend at the waist and lose balance... Marginal lateral range, choppy kick slide... Can be beat by speed... Will lean and lunge to make contact on the outside edge... Can be pushed back by stronger bull rushers... Gives up ground at POA in the passing game... Doesn't dominate at POA like a man his size should... Looks a little stiff and awkward in space... Lacks the flexibility and body control to cleanly fit on linebackers... More of an obstacle in space than actual blocker... Will lunge into downfield blocks... Best in short area, will get some looks at Guard but might not have the overall strength to move inside... Doesn't always appear to be playing with much urgency.
