    Prospect Profiles

    Sean Bubin
    Position: Offensive Tackle
    College: Illinois
    Height: 6-6
    Weight: 306
    Hometown: Rantoul, Ill.

    Analysis | Agility | High School | Personal

    OVERVIEW
    Model of consistency for the Illini, starting three seasons at the demanding left offensive tackle position … Allowed only one quarterback sack in 36 games as a starter … A two-way lineman in high school, he spent his freshman season at Illinois performing on special teams … Replaced Marques Sullivan at left tackle the following year, leading the way as the offense set school season records for yardage in both 2001 and 2002.

    ANALYSIS
    Positives: Has a tall frame with long arms, broad shoulders, good thickness in the chest, wide waist and hips, thick thighs and calves and above-average balance … Shows excellent body control on the move, exploding on contact … Has above-average lateral agility and quickly gets out front when pulling in space … Looks fluid in making the hard reach block, then pivoting to locate a secondary target … Plays with a good base, keeping his feet underneath his body … Sets a heavy anchor and rarely over-extends … Uses his mass and strength very well when blocking in-line … Stays on blocks consistently and shows proper hand placement that allows him to control and sustain … Sets his feet and shows quickness kicking out in his pass blocking, using his speed to redirect inside … Adept at switching up on stunts and is quick to recognize and locate the blitz … His nimble feet allow him to drop step and cut off and reach when zone blocking … Also gives 100-percent effort to hold on and stay on blocks … Keeps his shoulders square on double teams and has the burst to locate linebackers working into the second level.

    Negatives: Gets good movement off the snap, but needs to keep his shoulders square rather than lean into the defenders … More of a mauler than a fighter, preferring to defeat his man with finesse rather than aggression … Has a good kick slide, but is sometimes late to cut off vs. the wide speed rush … Gets his leg base a little too wide at times, resulting in him being late to change direction vs. the quick speed rush.

    AGILITY TESTS
    5.13 in the 40-yard dash … 1.82 10-yard dash … Bench presses 225 pounds 25 times … 4.74 20-yard shuttle … 7.54 three-cone drill … 26½-inch vertical jump … 8-foot-2 broad jump … 33¼-inch arm length … 9 3/8-inch hands.

    HIGH SCHOOL
    Attended Rantoul (Ill.) High, earning first-team all-state honors from the Chicago Tribune and Illinois High School Coaches Association as a junior and senior … Two-time News-Gazette all-area selection … Two-time All-Big 12 Conference offensive and defensive line pick … Named Rantoul MVP, Prep Star All-American, first-team ESPN All-American and Chicago Sun-Times "Top 100" selection … Helped lead Rantoul to the state playoffs as a senior … Played on the offensive line, defensive line and tight end for Coach Terry Workman … Earned eight varsity letters, including three in football, two in track and three in basketball.

    PERSONAL
    Leisure Studies/Sports Management major … Brother, Aaron, played football at Southern Illinois … Son of Barry and Janet Bubin, owners of Miko Restaurant in Champaign, Ill. … Born Sean Christopher Bubin on Jan. 26, 1981 in Houston, Texas … Resides in Rantoul, Ill.

    WWWOOOWW he sounds amazing. 1 sack allowed in 36 starts that's awesome. Let's hope he's the next Orlando Pace, Jonathon Ogden, or Walter Jones


    "SSSMMMOOTTT" & "Toine" will be the best CB combo in the NFL next year TRUST ME!!!

    The numbers sound good, but something must be funny about his technique or something since he was only a practice squad guy.
