On the Hoof: Huge barrel chest with the legs of a linebacker are the two most prominent physical features for this lineman. He has that thick football neck and arms the size of the average person's legs. Bobek physically will remind fans of Texas A&M lineman Patrick Lewis.
Needs Improvement: Bobek must get his hands inside when pass blocking thus gaining the advantage. He also has to watch out about lunging out while pass protecting. Has a tendency to go all the way to the ground with his opponent, by keeping his feet he could possibly throw another block, extending the play.
Most Impressive: A very powerful offensive lineman with athletic legs which allow him to explode out of his stance. He is a natural hip and knee bender that has the ability to get down field to make blocks on unsuspecting linebackers. Bobek does a nice job of winning pad level battles during run blocking.
Conclusion: Center is a tough position to just jump into straight from high school. Expect him to redshirt as he learns the offense and blitz pick-up. His athleticism is off the charts and if he has equivalent toughness expect him to be a two- to three-year starter.
