NFL Draft Scouting Report: Marvin Philip

Posted Oct 29, 2005

Marvin Philip\C\California

Full Name: Marvin Philip     School: California

Ht: 6-1     Wt: 295     40: 5.25     Yr: 6Sr

Pos: Technically sound lineman who does the little things well. Quick off the snap, bends knees and gets leverage on opponents. Stays square, works hands throughout the action and makes effective use of blocking angles. Works well with teammates and always looking for someone to hit.

Neg: Stiff, lacks adjustment and not effective in space. Rarely opens up the middle of the field and does not possess a dominant base.

Analysis: Hard working on the pivot, Philip lacks top size for the center position yet could develop into an adequate backup in the NFL.
