Strengths Weaknesses

STRENGTHS: Stone is quick off the snap, has good vision and keeps his head on a swivel. Well-built for play along the interior, Stone sports a stout frame with a thick lower-half. He shows good awareness in pass protection, sliding laterally to help teammates and reacting appropriately to surprise blitzes and stunts. His balance and surprising overall athleticism help him while blocking on the move, as well. One unique aspect that scouts will notice with Stone is that he switches hands when snapping. A natural left-hander, Stone fires the ball back out of shotgun southpaw but switches to his right hand when the quarterback is under center.WEAKNESSES: Needs to be more assertive at the point of attack. He engages, but is simply content with getting in the way and not controlling the contact point of the defender. Bad habit of popping upright, allowing rushers to get lower and win with leverage. He looks tight when attempting to change directions and struggles to recover after a false step, something that was very evident against the Tide defenders.--Dane Brugler & Rob Rang

Player Overview

Interior linemen rarely get the attention they deserve but Stone's quickness, versatility and ability to anchor could make him one of the country's top picks at the center position in the 2014 draft.While Stone is highly thought of by some, his game tape against Alabama in 2013 won't do him any favors.(10/28/13)
