On the Hoof: Hobbi has wide shoulders, thick arms and the chest of a serious weightlifter. Hobbi has very little bad body weight and adding another 20 pounds wonâ€™t be a problem. His physique is similar to Notre Dame offensive guard Chris Watt.
Needs Improvement: He is fairly lean right now and could use some extra weight for run blocking. Hobbi also thinks he is an offensive tackle, but his arms are not long enough so he will need to learn how to play inside.
Most Impressive: Hobbi looks very natural getting into his pass set and understands the importance of hand placement. He does a nice job of moving his feet while engaged with a defender. His body type looks very versatile as he could easily play center, guard and perhaps right offensive tackle.
Conclusion: This tough offensive lineman has what it takes to become a three-year starter. He backs down to no one and is very athletic for the position.
