POSITIVES

—Athletic, smart center ideal for a zone-blocking scheme.

Combine performance showed his burst, body control and overall agility with top times in the 40-yard dash (5.09 seconds), vertical jump (33 ½"), broad jump (111") and three-cone drill (7.5 seconds).

—Experienced at center and guard and brings value as a potential sixth offensive lineman.

—Handles line checks well and won't be thrown off by advanced defensive play calls.

—Brother of Houston Texans lineman David Quessenberry.

             

NEGATIVES

—Play strength is average; won't push the pile from center.

—A touch small for power-blocking schemes at 6'5", 302 pounds.

—Surgery on both shoulders in 2015.

—Doesn't protect his chest in pass protection and will have to learn to better use his length and timing to win the rep.

—Looks athletic but doesn't move as well getting upfield in the run game.

                            

OVERALL

UCLA center Scott Quessenberry has the traits to develop into a starter at guard or center. His burst, agility and balance were all impressive at the Senior Bowl and in combine testing. Showing up big in those two events has his stock rising.

        

GRADE: 5.75 (Round 4-5)

PRO PLAYER COMPARISON: David Quessenberry, Houston Texans
