    Estes, 22, never has taken shortcuts or ever believed he could afford to skip a weightlifting session or practice. That's why today, the 6-foot-3, 300-pound senior will make his 45th consecutive start, a remarkable streak considering the physical nature of his position

    Estes' work ethic, his ability to perform seamlessly at two positions - he was a guard his freshman season - under two head coaches and five different offensive line coaches, and his blocking skills especially in pass protection, have earned him the respect of his teamates and coaches.

    Estes has caught the attention of pro scouts, as well. Recently, 18 NFL teams had scouts at Hawaii's practices in Seattle prior to its game at Washington State, and 11 teams were represented two weeks ago before the UNLV game in Las Vegas.
