• Position: Offensive tackle

• Height: 6-6

• Weight: 321

• College: Florida State

• Highlights: The Lombardi Award and Outland Trophy Watch List member and preseason all-ACC selection was limited to four starts before injuring his shoulder. Started 11 games as a junior, grading out with an 87 percent grade for blocking consistency. Recorded 85 knockdowns and 40 touchdown-resulting blocks in his career. Allowed just four sacks on 1,217 pass attempts. Penalized three times on 2,576 offensive plays.

• Strengths: Quick out of his stance. Has good feet to shuffle, slide and push rushers wide. Technically sound. Keeps his hands inside and can pop and recoil. Understands angles and positioning. Was undersized as a freshman. Is tough and plays through pain. Motivated, hard-working and coachable.

• Weaknesses: Lacks ideal bulk and functional strength. A narrow-framed, converted tight end. Average arm length. Limited power for his body. Gets outmuscled at the point of attack. Is not stout in his lower body to anchor vs. the bull rush. Has a history of shoulder issues dating to high school.

• Quotable: “It was pretty stressful waiting, watching other lineman go ahead of you, knowing you can play better than them, but I fell to a great organization in Green Bay.” — Andrew Datko on waiting so long to get drafted
