from PFWs draft preview:

6-2, 307, 5.01

Positives: Thickly built widebody. Good strength at the point of attack and will torque defenders with strong upper body. Will fight double teams. Plays with nice leverage and balance. Solid tackler. Works hard. Stepped up in big game vs. Texas.

Negatives: Limited production as rotational player. Not very quick and is slow to change direction. Scouts would like to see more agreesiveness and urgency in his play. Can do a better job using his hands to shed blocks.

Summary: Could compete for a roster spot as a three-technique player and should be a second-day pick.
