Pos: 
Four-year starter who was primarily a gap occupier for Auburn. Plays with proper pad level, keeps his feet moving and keeps his knees bent throughout the action. Displays solid change of direction, chases the action hard and works his hands to protect himself. Flashes the ability to slide down the line of scrimmage. Strong, attracts double-team blocks and takes up a lot of room but holds his ground.
Neg: 
Does not always play with a sense of urgency. Displays an average first step off the snap. Did not improve his game as a senior.
Analysis: 
Russell possesses the size and strength to play at the next level but must elevate his game and consistently get the most from his ability.
