Pros: Has good size and strength.

Cons: Doesn't have as much pop as you'd hope at the point of attack. Not good on the move and doesn't adjust well in space.

Overview: A good short-area and straight-ahead lead blocker. Missed half the season with a broken bone in his foot, that was injured the year before. Played on it as a junior, but the surgery after the season seemingly didn't repair it. Tough, hard-working player. Finished career with 17 rushing touchdowns and 35 receptions. Native of Dacula, GA, just outside Atlanta.

NFL Forecast: My only viewing of him was in Georgia's bowl game, and wasn't that impressed as he split time with Georgia's other fullbacks. But I could blame that on the injury. But he is a solid lead blocker, but just appears to be nothing special. Has the size and strength potential you like to see, but he's not a guy that is going to pancake guys. If he can impact special teams early on, he'll stick as teams try and develop him. He should be an average starter down the road.

ATL Forecast: He could work in Atlanta, but he's not much better than Snelling and doesn't have a ton of upside. If he could play on special teams, he could be worth developing for the Falcons. Could eventually take over for Mughelli in a year or two, but not sure he'd be a better option than Snelling at that point.

Value: Could sneak into the seventh round for a team looking for a guy to develop for a year or two.
