Prospect Profile: Michael De La Grange
Ht: 6-5 Wt: 355 40: 5.81 Year: 5Sr
Bio: Full-time starter last season after struggling through an injury-plagued junior campaign. Started eight games as a sophomore at both left and right tackle.
Positives: Massive offensive blocker who has proved himself to be nothing more than a size prospect. Quickly sets in pass protection, stays square and jolts opponents with his hands. Patient, strong at the point and easily pushes defenders from their angle of attack. Displays potential as a position blocker.
Negatives: Marginal footwork sliding out to protect the edge. Looks overweight, poorly conditioned and heavy legged. Struggles with speed rushers and does a lot of leaning.
Analysis: Possessing the body and size to potentially become a strong side tackle at the next level, DeLaGrange has yet to prove he is willing to put forth the commitment necessary. A classic underachiever who's gotten by on natural talent.
