Brian Folkerts
Position: G
Class:  Sr
School: Washburn
HT: 6'3"
WT: 310 lbs.
40 Time: 5.36
Conference: Non-Division I
Biography: Three-year starter at both tackle positions. Awarded all-conference honors since his sophomore season.

Positives: Nice-sized college tackle who projects to guard in the NFL. Quick off the snap, explosive at the point and keeps his feet moving throughout the action. Sets with a wide base, works to stays square and blocks with a nasty attitude. Controls defenders at the point of attack, seals them from the action and keeps his head on a swivel. Anchors in pass protection and works his hands throughout the play.

Negatives: Lacks footwork and lateral blocking range. Struggles blocking in motion and is best in a small area.

Analysis: Folkerts was productive and durable on the college level and offers size as well as growth potential for the NFL. He's a versatile blocker who could find a home as an inexpensive backup.

Projection: FA
