Bio: 
Two-year starter at Auburn who transferred from Texas. Started at right tackle in 2017 after playing mostly left tackle as a junior. Sat out the 2015 season after transferring. Made two starts at right tackle for the Longhorns in 2014.
Pos: 
Underrated guard prospect ignored in scouting circles. Has a thick, powerful build, squares into defenders and seals them from the action. Sets with a wide base, works to bend his knees and anchors at the point. Gets movement as a run blocker and drives defenders off the line.
Neg: 
Stiff, immobile and struggles to adjust and block in motion. Slow out to the second level. Plays with average balance.
Analysis: 
James is a powerful wide-bodied blocker with enough ability to back up at guard in a power-running offense.
