Full David Paulson News Wire
Positives: Good short-area foot quickness with very good footwork. Good-sized target with determination and toughness to finish plays. Has smooth body control, reliable hands and natural ball skills to adjust to off-target throws and make impressive grabs. Uses his eyes well to track the ball with very good focus. An effort-blocker, showing improved technique
Negatives: Has a smallish frame with underwhelming power, lean arms and little muscle definition. Added just over 10 pounds in five years at Oregon and doesn't appear to have spent much time clanging the weights. Tight hips, limited long speed and isn't naturally explosive. Not an in-line blocker with a weak base.
