Combine 40: 5.46 - Position Rank: 8 of 28

Positives: Good athlete... Versatile... Good size... Good arm extension but below average arm length... Good strength... Solid knee bend... Can anchor well at POA, holds up well versus bull rushers... Very solid pass protector... Reasonably good agility... Very solid lateral movement and slide... Can stay with his blocks and mirror well but lacks consistency in this area... Very solid run blocker... Displays a solid burst into his run blocks... Flashes good power but will struggle to establish leverage... Good hand punch... Can control defender once locked on, kind of a mauler... Can get to the second level, more of a obstacle than actual blocker in space... Solid flexibility and body control... Very solid balance... Tough... Gives a good effort... NFL Right Tackle... Another second tier Tackle who could get taken in the second round as teams look to plug holes on the O-Line.

Negatives: Footwork needs work... Lacks consistency redirecting... Can be slow getting into his pass set... Not very explosive... Can be beat by speed... Will lunge to reach the corner and maintain contact... Doesn't possess very good blocking range... Allows defenders inside his frame... Is too often pushed back into the pocket... Doesn't stay on his blocks long enough, not a good finisher... A little awkward looking in space, doesn't bring his feet... Doesn't break down consistently well and will miss some moving targets... Struggles to keep feet underneath him when blocking on the move... Doesn't appear to play with a mean streak, too much finesse to his game.
