Junior who has declared for the 2015 NFL draft. Transferred from Nebraska in spring 2013.
Positives: Runs with adequate speed and burst. Has above-average vision, and picks his way through traffic at the line fairly well. Gets low through the line in short-yardage situations to supplement his limited power, and churns his legs through contact. He is patient but also decisive behind the line. Adequate hands and hand-eye coordination, and can adjust slightly to passes thrown behind him.
Negatives: Below-average height and bulk for the position. Doesn’t seem to generate much power.
Projection: Round 7.
