GAME: Rockford(9/2/2010)

Analysis: Steward has excellent size at 6'7, 270-lbs. He flashed a couple times in the run game, with strong finishes on blocks, particularly in short yardage situations. He has unusual height for a guard prospect, and may end up moving out to tackle. To do that, he will have to continue to improve his quickness and speed, but he has a good frame, shows good natural strength and he is able to get low in his run blocking. He plays hard, but I'd still like to see him be more aggressive.

Verdict: He has upside because of his size and strength. He'll almost certainly be tried at tackle during college camps this summer and those experiences will be key in his development and quest to earn some offers.
