Career Snapshot
Three-year starter who earned First Team All-Mountain West honors in each of his final two seasons at Boise State. Named Honorable Mention All-Mountain West as a sophomore in 2017.

Positives
Athletic left tackle prospect who stands out in pass protection and comes with huge upside. Bends his knees, plays with proper pad level and blocks with tremendous fundamentals. Keeps his feet moving, easily slides off the edge and displays terrific range in pass protection. Immediately gets his hands up, correctly places them into defenders and stays square. Handles small, speedy edge rushers with ease. Shows the ability to get out to the second or even third level and block in motion. Patient, stays square and seals defenders from the action. Easily handles one-on-one assignments.

Negatives
Displays average strength as a run blocker and really doesn’t finish blocks or get a lot of movement.

Analysis
After an outstanding three-year career at Boise State, Cleveland turned in a tremendous workout at the NFL Combine and now moves towards the draft as a potential first-round pick. He’s a solid prospect with big upside and can be used at left tackle or potentially guard. He’s a zone-blocking prospect who should only improve as he physically matures and gets into an NFL weight-training program.
