Projection

4-7 Round Day 3

Comparison

Joe Thuney New England Patriots

Thick and will re-shape his 6-6, 314-pound frame in college. Ideal playing weight is about 290 pounds. Strong lower body, can sink his hips and stay low when he fires off at the snap. Bends well at the knees and often wins leverage against much smaller opponents. Good strength with initial punch. Footwork is clean when pulling from guard position. Aggressive and physical in running game and gets to second level quickly. Needs to improve consistency with hand placement. Pass protection needs work. Dips head too often and reaches and gets off balance. Also impacts effectiveness of his length. Has ability to slide but needs to trust technique more. Upper body strength is good but improvement will help. Three-year starter at upper level Power 5 school and third- to fifth-round NFL draft pick.
