Pos: 
Nice-sized offensive lineman who comes off a significant knee injury. Explosive at the point, stays square and easily controls defenders once engaged. Sets with a wide base, correctly places his hands into defenders and easily turns them from the action. Big enough and strong enough to block down and engulf defenders. Plays with a nasty attitude and works to finish blocks. Blocks with proper lean and keeps his head on a swivel.
Neg: 
Immobile and lacks balance in motion. Most effective in a very small area. Cannot slide his feet in pass protection. Not a natural knee bender.
Analysis: 
Bars was highly rated by scouts before the season and offers next-level size, but he’s a marginal athlete who now must rebound from a knee injury. He's best in a conventional system and would struggle in a zone-blocking scheme.
