Bio: 
Four-year starter who played both tackle positions as well as right guard during his San Jose State career. Named Honorable Mention All-Mountain West as a right tackle in 2015.
Pos: 
Nice-sized tackle who plays fundamentally sound football. Sets with a wide base, bends his knees and fires off the snap into blocks. Effective in pass protection, keeps his feet and hands active and slides off the edge. Keeps his head on a swivel. Steers defenders from their angles of attack.
Neg: 
Lacks a dominant lower base, gets marginal movement as a run blocker and gets pushed into the pocket. Just an average athlete.
Analysis: 
Velichko was a terrific player at the college level and comes with nice length and growth potential. He must improve his playing strength but is worth practice-squad consideration.
