Four-year starter at left guard. Earned Second Team All-ACC honors as a junior in 2015. Academic All-ACC as a sophomore in 2014.
Consistent, durable lineman who plays aggressive football. Strong at the point, keeps his head on a swivel and is always looking for someone to hit. Stays square, blocks with proper lean and anchors in pass protection. Makes good use of angles and body positioning to seal defenders from the play.
Heavy-footed, cannot slide in space and is ineffective blocking in motion. Marginal athlete.
Pedersen was a tremendous offensive lineman on the college level but lacks the athleticism and mobility necessary for Sunday football.
