Good length, solid feet and does a good job not letting them die on contact as a run blocker. Moves around pretty good, but he worries me with how early he turns his shoulders in pass pro. That’s something better rushers will expose.
Hookfin isn’t a name I’m familiar with. That’s a solid class, but it’s lacking interior bodies and particularly one that can at least crosstrain at center. Shepherd’s floor also spooks me a little bit. 6.5 is my cautious answer.
I live here and have Bevo on the tailgate of my truck. My job here is fairly high profile, and the people who know me know that I am a Longhorn. That said, I am also a huge Chad Morris fan and he is a personal friend since 1991. There are a fairly significant amount of UT fans here in Bella Vista where I live.
