Overview:

Are has great size, he is a tough nosed player, and a mauler. He is also a good run blocker, he is also a good pass blocker, and he opens holes up for his backs. He holds up well in pass protection, he does not get pushed around that easily at the line of scrimmage, and he gets a nice push on the defensive line. He also gives his quarterback enough time to get the ball out, and is very athletic for his size. He does not have great speed, but that not hurt his game, and he missed 2 games in 2016 due to an injury. But with that said, I view Are as a day 3 pick, likely somewhere in the 4th to 5th round range, where he will be a primary backup, and eventually be given the chance to be a starter in the NFL.
