Bio: 
Four-year starter who played three positions during his time with the Panthers. Started 10 games at center as a redshirt freshman before moving to right guard and starting all 13 games in 2015. Moved back to center as a junior and made 13 starts before starting all 12 games at left guard in 2017 and being named Honorable Mention All-ACC. Finished his career with 46 consecutive starts.
Pos: 
Wide-bodied blocker who can play center and guard. Powerful, explosive at the point of attack and displays excellent quickness for a bigger lineman. Can be an overwhelming force and engulf defenders. Has a thick lower body and great power in his base and slugs it out in the middle of the field. Rides defenders from their angles of attack with excellent hand punch and fights hard throughout the play.
Neg: 
Really doesn’t sink his butt at the line of scrimmage or block with consistent leverage. Lumbers around the field and isn’t light on his feet.
Analysis: 
Officer is a big, nasty lineman better in a small area. He lacks great upside but could be an inexpensive backup on the interior offensive line.
