Andy Dodd: 2011 highlights
Andy Dodd plays smaller than his size. It's hard to imagine he played his junior season at 315-pounds as a tight end. He has added 10-pounds since the end of the season and now a solid 6-foot-4, 325-pounds.
Dodd will move from tight end to tackle this fall and expected to remain on the offensive line once he arrives in Tuscaloosa. He has the ability to play any position on the line, according to his high school coach, and likely to move inside to guard or center.
Dodd is extremely athletic for his size and played tight end the past two seasons. He was used primarily as a blocker, but also a pass catcher. He can move and can run. Dodd has great footwork and can get to the second or third level with ease. He is a great run blocker and physical at the point of attack. He has good size, strength and agility to have a bright future in the SEC.
Dodd plays in a run-oriented offense and must continue to develop his skills as a pass blocker. He will make the transition from blocking tight end to tackle this fall. His footwork and athleticism should help, but he is still learning a new position.
