Pos: 
Nasty lineman with excellent length and upside potential. Quickly sets up off the snap, fires into blocks and plays with good awareness. Starts with good knee bend, stays square and seals defenders from the action with proper body positioning. Effective with his hands, keeps his head on a swivel and works through the whistle. Moves well on his feet and shows the ability to kick out and pull across the line of scrimmage.
Neg: 
Base gets a little narrow in his setup. Possesses a thin build and lacks strength in his base. Gets pushed back into the pocket and struggles to finish blocks. Tore ligaments in his knee last season and required surgery.
Analysis: 
Natour was a solid college tackle who projects to guard at the next level and offers growth potential and upside. He's a practice-squad prospect who needs to polish his game but could develop into an inexpensive utility lineman at the next level.
