Player Overview

A player who has lined up at both left tackle and left guard the past few seasons, Spain appears much more comfortable inside at guard and hopefully sees more snaps there in 2014.

Strengths Weaknesses

He is stiff, tight-jointed and high cut, which shows up quite a bit during games, but he does have the body and length that coaches want to work with at the next level. Spain's functional strength and timing are both question marks, but where he needs to improve the most is his hand placement, which is all over the place and causes him to fall off blocks or get grabby.

His kick slide and blocking ability at the second level aren't strengths either, but it's also easier to mask his short-area skill-set when he lines up inside at guard.

Spain has some NFL traits, but isn't a sure thing to be drafted at this point and needs to improve in several areas this season.
