Pros:  Short, squatty powerful build preferred by NFL offensive line coaches for the middle. Good hand placement.

Cons:  Lacks the lower body strength to consistently generate movement in short-yardage situations. Good quickness to get to the second level for combination blocks

Styg's Broncos Fit:   A smart player who has started at both center and at right guard.  He was a team captain who knows how to anchor, and how to play with leverage.  Cna hold his own versus strength and bull-rush oriented opponents and also has the lateral agility and speed to pull or trap effectively.  Has great hand technique and can turn defenders and get his hands placed well, and can place and reset to maintain the line of scrimmage.  Tough and thick like a burlwood knot in the middle of the line, he has only marginal lower body strength and struggles to get a push in short yardage and goalline situations.  Overall a solid pickup as a late rounder who could provide solid depth or be a surprising earlier pick with potential to start.

Around MHR:

From "My Broncos Mock Draft":

I like Kory Lichtensteiger and I know that Casey Wiegmann is a Pro Bowler but when you think about it, nobody is safe under this new regime. Just ask Jay Cutler. That is why we don't know if Josh McDaniels is that crazy about Kory Lichtensteiger and therefore he might want to pick his own middle round Center. If he does I think it will involve Alex Fletcher a Center from my Stanford University which I live only 7 minutes away from. Because of that I have gotten the opportunity to see him play a lot and I know just what he is capable of. He is a strong blocker who is very accurate with his snaps. He also has potential as a great special teams blocker on punts. If he was available by the 5th round I think that it would be hard for our coaching staff to resist.
