What scouts are saying:

"Engages quickly and runs his feet on contact. Effective with an angle and can swing his hips in the hole. Generates movement in the run game and works to finish blocks. Good bend and balance -- plays on his feet. Sound fundamentals in pass protection. Strong, active hands to punch and control defenders. Can shuffle and slide. Good mobility. Works well in tandem. Smart and alert. Praised for his toughness and blue-collar work ethic. Three-year starter." (Nolan Nawrocki, NFL.com)

"Wide-bodied with a solid trunk. Balanced athlete with decent movement skills. Sinks and anchors well to absorb contact at the point of attack and hold his ground. Physical and won't shy from contact with powerful hands to redirect rushers and gain positioning - quick punch and uses his mitts in both pass protection and run blocking. Extends well to keep rushers from his body and does a nice job in space to latch-and-drive. Tough competitor and leaves it all out on the field and is considered a high effort player by his coaches and teammates. Three-year starter with 37 career starts, all at left guard." (Dane Brugler, CBSSports.com)
