First-Team All-American in 2011...Won the Morris Trophy in 2011, awarded to the top offensive lineman in the Pac-12 Conference...Anchored a line that allowed an FBS-low eight sacks of quarterback Matt Barkley...Allowed zero sacks himself in 2011 protecting Barkley's blind side...Tremendous size and strength doesn't take away from athleticism, as he ran an impressive 4.99 40-yard dash at the NFL Combine...Quick off the ball and makes explosive blocks in both the run and pass game...NFL pedigree, as dad played semi-professionally and older brother Ryan is a Pro Bowl center for the Carolina Panthers...The top offensive line prospect on most, if not all, team's draft boards and could conceivably be a top-five pick.
