Player Overview

Wells posted 24 reps on the 225-pound bench press at his March 17 pro day to go with a 5.25-second 40-yard dash, 32-inch vertical, 9'6" broad jump, 4.59 short shuttle and 7.50 3-cone drill.

Wells was a four-year starter in high school - at quarterback, throwing for more than 4,000 yards and 28 touchdowns while rushing for more than 900 career yards with five more touchdowns on the ground.

He redshirted in 2009 and entered spring the following year at tight end before moving to defensive line and going on to play in all 11 games. He moved to the offensive line in 2011, and started eight games before suffering a season-ending injury.

Wells returned to start all 11 games on the offensive line as a junior, and went on to earn second team All-CAA honors as a senior.

Strengths Weaknesses

STRENGTHS: Good overall athlete who was a dual-threat quarterback in high school before moving to tight end, then defensive line before settling in on the offensive line over the past three seasons. Three-year starter on the OL. Good size, and a potential reserve on the right side at tackle or potentially guard. Strong competitor.

WEAKNESSES: Rarely faced NFL-caliber talent at James Madison, and may lack the quick feet necessary to handle outside pass rushers in the NFL. Struggles with athletic pass rushers and with blocking while on the move.
