Pros:  Positives: Tough, feisty leader who rarely gets beat inside. Sells out to protect his quarterback. Quick to cut, effectively getting into his man's thighs

Cons:  Small, lacking height and girth. Relies on technique and intelligence instead of brute strength at the point.

Styg's Broncos Fit:   Another undersized zone-block specimen with adequate smarts and recognition, a good snapper in the shotgun and a great never-say-die attitude.  Team player who buys in completely to the line and QB, giving up his body in protection.  Of course, he wouldn't have to do that so much if he had the strength and athleticism to consistently hold the point of attack.  Intriguing prospect with a small amount of upside, rare for this late in the draft.

Scouting Reports and Offsite Links:

  • A tough, gritty pivot who displays good technique and hand placement inside. Relies on his quickness inside and understands angles, consistently wins his one-on-one hand battles inside. Showcases good body control on the move with the coordination to cut defenders down to the ground. Takes great pride in his responsibilities and plays with the type of nasty nature and intensity you love from your center.  [see more...]
