Notes:
Was one of the top lineman in the Pac-10 and earned a spot on the conference's Second Team in 2009...A versatile player that has spent time at tackle and center, as well as guard...Has performed at the highest level against elite talent, and comes into this draft as one of the more intelligent players at his position...An outstanding run blocker and has enjoyed success in pass blocking as well...Is a very tough individual that explodes off the line...Has dealt with durability issues in his career, making him an injury concern forteams at the next level...is a tad undersized for the NFL and will have to add some weight if he wants to maximize his potential at the next level.
