6’5” – 309 lbs. 5.32
Started pretty much everywhere in college: 26 games at right tackle, six at right guard, and three as a jumbo tight end. Played tackle last year but projects as a pro guard due to lack of ideal length (arms just over 33”) and athletic limitations. Well-built for a guard, with solid functional strength. Comes from a well-respected, pro-style offense which asked him to handle lots of different responsibilities which translate well to the next level. When blocking on angles, does a good job of attacking the outside shoulder and sealing defenders inside. Good leg drive after contact. Works hard to get to the second level and engage defenders in the run game. Able to absorb power pretty well with his anchor in pass protection. Pretty accurate with his hand placement. Able to bend his knees and compete relatively well in the leverage battle. Avoids penalties. Sells out to reach landmarks, leading to him overrunning his spot at times. More workmanlike than nasty. Struggles to get enough depth in his kickslide to protect the edge; actual pass sets look a little bit hunched. Frequently abandoned his technique to defend against speed when he didn’t have a tight end retained in pass protection on his side of the line. Susceptible to inside moves. More of a catch-and-ride approach than someone who aggressively fires out his punch and jolts defenders. Looks like a mid-rounder on tape, with the ability to potentially work his way into the starting lineup at guard over time. His size, versatility, and the reputation of Wisconsin’s program give him a relatively high floor.
