Alex Bars, OT, Notre Dame #71

6052, 315, 5.27

Notes: From Nashville, TN. Redshirted in 2014. Appeared in 6 games and made 2 starts at left guard before a broken left ankle injury ended his season in 2015. Started all 12 games at right guard in 2016. Started all 13 games at right tackle in 2017. Named as a team captain in 2018, and is expected to start at left guard.

Positives: Highly versatile, having played right tackle and both guard spots. Nice size. Effective on combination blocks. Moves well for his size and can block downfield. Can get to the second level and takes good blocking angles. Smart. Quick off the ball. Seals off and sustains nicely. Can mirror and shows good hand punch as pass blocker.

Negatives: Needs to improve footwork on pass protection and has a tendency to stop moving his feet at times. Will struggle with quickness. Is not overpowering or particularly physical.

Summary: More steady and versatile than a true standout. Should make a team as a swing guy and could eventually start.
