Ray Feinga
6-4/329 BYU

Pros: Has nice size and moves well for his size. Does a good job pulling and blocking on the second level. Has nice footwork and can block on an island. Uses his hands well and locks on in pass protection. Is a capable cut blocker. Does a nice job getting position in the ground game.

Cons: Needs to refine his technique and footwork somewhat, and can get caught overextending. Is not as dominant a run blocker as you'd expect from a player his size, and needs to show more pop in the ground game.

Overview: Feinga is a nice three-year starter at left guard for BYU, and has more athletic potential and upside than his teammate Bright. Suspended for a game as a junior for violating team rules.

NFL Forecast: Feinga has greater upside than Bright because of his athletic potential. But he's not quite as polished, but if a team can tap in and develop that athletic ability, he could be a solid starter at the next level. Feinga may take a bit longer to develop and impact at the next level, perhaps needing two or three years on the bench to develop. But if he can develop he'll be a capable starting guard with potential to be a good starter. Reminds me of a poor man's Vince Manuwai.

ATL Forecast: Feinga has upside to develop on the Falcons line. In a couple of years, he could be a really good starter. But he is probably not a guy that is going to upgrade the line in the immediate future. But he could be a nice backup for two or so years and then be able to push for and land a starting job near the end of his rookie contract.

Value: Feinga has fourth round potential, but the fact that he may not be an immediate contributor probably pushes him back into the fifth round.
