Name: Paul Stawarz
SCHOOL: Texas Tech
CONFERENCE: Big 12
POSITION: Interior Offensive Lineman
JERSEY: No. 76
RECRUITMENT RATING: N/A
WT: 295 lbs
PROS: Dominant puller. Able to kick out force defenders with ease, solid path and drives feet through contact. Mobility allows him to get out in front well. Can reach on pulls as well, get hips around and excellent hat placement. Mobility allows him to lead out in front on screen passes down the field or climb to the second level in the run game. Does an excellent job positioning his frame in the run game, getting his hips and head in the hole. Has vice grips in the upper body that don’t allow defenders to shed as ball carriers pass. High effort player. Proper technique in pass pro, keeping hips in-between defender and quarterback. Immediately replaces hand inside. Solid leg strength and anchor to stonewall interior defensive lineman.
CONS: Only has average overall strength, and can fail to reach defensive lineman because of this. Can give up some slight initial pressure in pass protection. Can occasionally get caught lunging in pass protection and leads to being off-balance or slightly inaccurate initial shock.
