First-Team All-American and First-Team All-SEC as a junior in 2012, winning the Outland Trophy as the nation's top interior lineman...Anchored an offensive line that paved the way for freshman quarterback Johnny Manziel to win the Heisman Trophy...Earned All-Big 12 First-Team honors as a sophomore in 2011, after being on the Big 12's All-Freshman squad in 2010...Won the starting job at left tackle as a freshman and played all 37 games of his career...A prototypical left tackle, who is fundamentally sound...Rarely gets beat and when he does off the snap, has the athleticism to recover...Great size and size potential, with excellent foot work and adequate strength to handle the bull rush...Cerebral player that is rarely out of position, with an above-average football I.Q. to recognize defensive schemes and adjust to them...Improved in terms of aggressiveness as a junior but could be a little nastier in finishing off blocks...A much more polished pass blocker than run blocker at this time...Regarded as arguably the top player in the draft.
