That is what really caught my attention. I doubt NFL competition will let him do this to them, but it does tell me he has the quickness to effectively trap, pull and block the second level of the defense. It also tells me he could play both center and guard. It will be interesting to see if he can hold up against a bull rush and can power block straight ahead knocking a lineman into a trailing LB. I'm very interested in seeing him play in the pre-season games.
