Bio: 
Three-year starter who earned First Team All-MAC honors and started every game at left tackle as a senior. Started eight games at right tackle and missed four games with a knee injury in 2016. Started at right tackle as a sophomore.
Pos: 
Large, nasty lineman best as a run blocker. Quick off the snap, explosive at the point and possesses tremendous size. Strong, stays square and easily turns defenders from the action. Patient in pass protection and does enough to knock pass rushers from their angles of attack. Nasty and looks to hit multiple people in a single play.
Neg: 
Really does not bend his knees or block with leverage. Stiff, slow-footed and struggles to adjust.
Analysis: 
Nkansah gets little mention in scouting circles but has the size and run-blocking strength to get a look at right tackle.
