Rutgers has a quarterback battle brewing and a bunch of guys sharing the load at running back. But whoever has the ball in his hands will be behind the best line in the Big East, led by potential All-American Anthony Davis. The the 2009 season nears, David Fox ranks the league's position units.[details]
Positives: Intelligent. Steady and level-headed. Good work ethic. Strives to get better at his craft and knows the way to the weight room. Excellent production. Very good leg strength. Nice placement to hem opponents inside the 20-yard line. Gets good lift and hang time. Only two punts leaked into the endzone as a senior. Served as the holder on placements. Well respected. Negatives: Was less than impressive at the Senior Bowl. Get-off times are just average - 1.3 to 1.4 seconds. Could hasten his delivery. Did not punt his first two years at Cincinnati. Summary: Good-sized, directional lefty who shows the ability to keep the ball outside the numbers. Hard worker with above-average leg strength to win a job. Grade: Late draftable prospect.
