    Todd Herremans, OT, Saginaw Valley State
    Height: 6:06.1 Weight: 321

    Overview: Herremans is a towering offensive tackle with a large wingspan that he uses very well to stave off the outside pass rush. He is a steady, competitive player with experience at both left and right tackle during his career with the Cardinals. He was a member of a senior class that amassed a four-year record of 39-9, including a 34-6 record in Great Lakes Intercollegiate Athletics Conference play, both marks ranking second all-time among SVSU senior classes. Herremans received All-State honors in football at Ravenna High School, where his father, Paul, served as one of his coaches. He served as senior class vice president. Herremans also lettered in basketball and track. He moved into the starting lineup at weak-side offensive tackle, earning team Most Valuable Freshman honors in 2001 at Saginaw Valley, where the team compiled an 11-2 record. Herremans was bothered at midseason with a right knee sprain that forced him to miss three games in 2002. He was a first-team All-Region choice as a junior, starting twelve games. He opened the season at right tackle in 2003, but upon returning from a left shoulder sprain that forced him to miss the Indianapolis contest, he switched to the more demanding left tackle position. In 2004, Herremans garnered All-American honors as he lined up at left tackle in every game, allowing only two quarterback sacks for the season.

    Analysis: Positives...Has a big, thick frame with broad shoulders, long arms, good bubble, thick thighs...Has the potential to carry at least another fifteen pounds on his frame with no loss in quickness...Above average athlete who has decent balance, adequate quickness and agility along with good playing speed...Good worker in the weight room and can take hard coaching...Uses his size well to gain position and could possibly be an effective guard because of his ability to pull and hit a moving target...Uses his long reach to hold off the pass rusher working on the edge...Gets good hand placement to lock on and steer...Has good field awareness, quickly picking up games and blitzes...Has the natural strength and size to sustain and shows just enough foot agility to slide with ease over a small area in pass protection...Has good straight line speed and when he stays low in his pads, he will utilize that quickness to drive the defender off the ball...Understands blocking assignments well and can make quick adjustments to the defensive schemes...Showed marked improvement in 2004, playing with more aggression...Showed better explosion off the snap in 2004 than he did in previous seasons, demonstrating much better leg drive to knock defenders off the ball.

    Negatives...Needs to add more muscle tone and bulk to his frame...Lacks hip flexibility and appears stiff...When he bends at the waist, he tends to lose balance, but he needs to play taller in order to generate better knee bend...Falls off some blocks when he keeps his base too narrow...Needs to be quicker in getting his hands up and into the defender's chest when coming off the snap...Crosses his feet a bit when trying to run block and this becomes more evident when working in space, as he lets his hands get outside of his frame, which prevents him from neutralizing the linebackers...Has shown better aggression than in the past, but still lacks that nasty streak you look for in a left tackle... In the run game, he has decent initial quickness off the ball, but lwhen he is used to pull, he does not show good agility on the move and struggles to execute his blocks in space as well...When he waist bends, he will over-reach on his angle blocks and will struggle vs. even decent speed off the edge, resulting in him having to chase the defensive end.

    Agility tests: CAMPUS: 5.22 in the 40-yard dash...Bench pressed 225 pounds 20 times...350-pound power clean... 4.62 20-yard shuttle...7.37 three-cone drill...30-inch vertical jump...8'2" broad jump...33-inch arm length...9 -inch hands...Right-handed...32/42 Wonderlic score.

    High school: Attended Ravenna (Mich.) High School, playing football for coach Dusty Fairfield...His father also served on the coaching staff...All-State pick in football...Also lettered in track and basketball.

    Personal: Exercise Science major, earning school and conference academic honors...Son of Paul and Marilee Herremans...Born 10/13/82...Resides in Ravenna, Michigan.
