PROSPECT SUMMARY - BEN CLEVELAND

Ben Cleveland aligned at right guard for the Bulldogs' offense. He is an average athlete with regard to his lateral agility and body quickness. However, he is a nasty interior lineman with solid technique and hand placement. He comes off the ball and strikes in the run game. He gets vertical movement and also does a good job of being a finisher. In the passing game, he is difficult to bull rush due to his competitiveness, nasty demeanor, and functional strength. He can anticipate stunts and twists inside and knows when to come off his man. 

Ideal Role: Prominent role players who could develop into a starter.

Scheme Fit: Power running scheme would be ideal.
