My Assessment: In limited viewing, he proved to be a blocker. He is more of a finesse blocker than power blocker. He positions himself well to make the block. He certainly fills a defined role. He can be a lead blocker, but probably will not help in the passing game - like Mike Henry did. Overview: Enrolled at Minnesota in January 2014 - will participate in spring practice - will have two years of playing eligibility left at Minnesota.
