Bio: 
First-year starter at center who made one start in 2016 and totaled 23 career appearances.
Pos: 
Strong, small-area lineman with limited upside. Displays outstanding vision, sees the blitz and works to pick up defenders. Strong, stays square and turns defenders from the action. Quick off the snap, explosive at the point and immediately gets his hands into defenders. Plays heads-up football and does a terrific job quarterbacking the offensive line.
Neg: 
Stiff, bends at the waist and gets beaten by quicker opponents. Plays off balance. Lacks great footwork in space and struggles to adjust.
Analysis: 
Kugler offers solid size and growth potential and showed enough ability in 2017 to get an invite to camp this summer.
