|High School||Stamford (Stamford, Connecticut)|
|An FCS standout who was a First-Team All-CAA selection in both 2008 and 2009...Born in Haiti, Ducasse moved to the USA in 2002...At 330 pounds, Ducasse is one of the largest offensive tackles eligible for this draft...Was able to get by with questionable pass blocking technique at the FCS level but needs some work to succeed against NFL-caliber rushers...Carries his weight quite well, enabling him to explode out of his stance on run plays and even make blocks down field...Is surprisingly agile in space, enabling him to square up with linebackers...An intelligent, hard-working player who was the captain of the UMass team...Extremely coachable.|
