6051, 305, 5.12

Notes: Grew up in Atlanta, GA before moving to Folsom, CA in ninth grade. Also had scholarship offers from Auburn, Arkansas, Florida, Georgia, Michigan and USC. Starting right tackle as freshman in 2016. Moved to left tackle in 2017. Started every game of his Alabama career – 44 straight (29 at left tackle, 15 at right tackle). Took a handful of snaps at left guard in one game in 2017. Sustained a high ankle sprain and ruptured deltoid in the team’s national championship game against Georgia to end the 2017 season. Played through a sprained ankle during the 2018 season but did not miss any games.

Positives: Good feet and athletic ability for pass protection. Very consistent and dependable. Good feel for the game. Sound fundamentals and technique. Moves his feet well, maintains wide base, good body control, strong punch, locks out and anchors. Patient. Mirrors and slides well in protection. Bends his knees. Recovers nicely. Understands angles and adjusts to movement well. Can get movement at the point of attack and sustains his blocks nicely. Looks for work and finishes. Stays on his feet and is rarely on the ground, except when putting defenders to the ground. Seals consistently. Can pull, trap and block downfield effectively. Dedicated student of the game who is constantly working to improve. Immerses himself in film study. Wants to be great.

Negatives: Isn’t naturally massive, powerful or dominant. Lacks outstanding length. Can struggle to anchor if defenders get into his chest. Still working to develop more pop and explosiveness.

Summary: Solid left tackle prospect who is very pro ready and consistent. Could play anywhere along the offensive line, including guard or center. Excellent fit in a zone-blocking scheme.
