Bio: 
Two-year starter at left tackle. Worked as a backup at left tackle and left guard as a sophomore and practiced at all five positions along the offensive line during his career.
Pos: 
Left tackle who plays best in a small area. Fires off the snap into blocks, stays square and jolts defenders with violent hand punch. Patient, anchors in pass protection and displays excellent vision. Keeps his head on a swivel, picks up stunts and blitzes and works well with linemates. Keeps his feet moving and works to bend his knees.
Neg: 
Heavy-footed and ineffective in motion. Not a natural knee bender. Struggles to adjust and gets exploited by nimble opponents.
Analysis: 
Malone is a powerful lineman predominantly best as a run blocker and must play in a small area.
