MATT STANKIEWITCH

Stank is the type of guy that the combine represents a huge opportunity.  If the draft were held today, he’d be taken very late, or end up as a free agent.  A strong showing in Indy can move him from a borderline guy, to a mid-to-late round guy, which means a significant amount of guaranteed money when contract time comes.  Matt’s versatility will be a plus for NFL teams, as he can play center, as he did very well the last 2 seasons, or guard, as he did prior to that.  He has a great motor, very much in the mold of your typical Penn Stater, and is viewed as a solid run blocker, but a guy that needs work in pass protection.  His leadership and intensity will come across well in interviews as well.  It is key for Matt to meet expectations on the various field drills, as that will likely be the difference between being drafted in April, or signing as a free agent.
