Scouting Report
Assets: Steady and hard working. Brought good footwork and technique to the O-line and worked hard on his craft. Occupied his man and finished his blocks. Generally got good leverage off the snap.
Flaws: Wasn't a dominating run blocker and didn't get enough push when blocking straight ahead. Didn't possess great quickness, and often struggled against speed rushers.
Career Potential: Superbly reliable O-line starter.
