Bio: 
Four-year starter at right tackle who spent three seasons at Rhode Island before transferring to Purdue as a graduate student.
Pos: 
Long, relatively athletic tackle prospect who is very durable. Explosive at the point, fires off the snap into blocks and stays square. Works his hands throughout the action, keeps his feet moving and plays through the whistle. Strong at the point and controls defenders once engaged.
Neg: 
Works to bend his knees but struggles to get leverage on opponents. Lacks footwork and overall lateral range as a blocker. More of a small-area lineman.
Analysis: 
Steinmetz was a solid two-year starter at Purdue and offers the size and growth potential to be stashed on a practice squad as a developmental right tackle.
