Two-year starter who began his career at Chabot Junior College. Teamed with his brother, Brad, on the Aggies' offensive line in 2003. Allowed only six quarterback sacks in two seasons at Cal-Davis.
Positives: Raw talent that is still learning the intricacies of playing on the offensive line … Shows good arm extension and a powerful hand punch coming off the snap … Explodes on contact, keeping his feet wide to maintain balance in pass protection … Has the ability to wall off and pull for the ground game and could shift inside to guard due to his trap blocking skills … Has the quickness to get to the second level to cut off the linebackers in run support … Has made great strides in improving his pass set and lateral agility … Has natural strength and a fluid hip roll which he uses effectively to seal off the edge rush … Flashes aggression blocking in-line and delivers a hand punch into the defender's chest consistently … Has very long arms (34 3/8-inch width) that he uses to his advantage in pass protection.
Negatives: Sometimes gets up on his toes in pass protection, and the more physical defenders capitalize on this to rock him back on his heels … Hits the target with good lateral agility, but has problems when defenders cross his face … Though he can make upfield blocks, his lumbering running style is better suited to the short area and he could shift to guard at the pro level.
No injuries reported.
