Bio: 
Four-year starter at right tackle who had his streak of 31 consecutive starts snapped in 2017. Started seven games as a senior, including one at guard.
Pos: 
Marginally athletic tackle who projects to guard at the next level. Quickly sets up off the snap, immediately gets his hands into defenders and steers opponents from their angles of attack. Stays square, keeps defenders in front of him and gives effort. Keeps his head on a swivel, plays with excellent awareness and fights through the whistle.
Neg: 
Displays limited agility and struggles to adjust. Beaten around the corner by speed rushers and ineffective blocking in motion. Doesn’t finish run blocks.
Analysis: 
Graded as a potential late-round choice by scouts entering the season, DiLauro offers decent size and growth potential but has limited upside for the next level. He’s potentially a practice-squad player with a slight chance to make a roster as a utility backup.
