Vandervelde, 6-2, 301, enters the fray on the offensive line after a productive Big Ten career. With Nick Cole, Max Jean-Gilles and Reggie Wells all slated to be free agents, there is plenty of room for Vandervelde to make an impact on the offensive line.
Here's the full scouting report on the former Hawkeye, courtesy of Tony Pauline of Sports Illustrated.
Bio: Three-year starter awarded all-Conference honors as a senior.
Pros: Fundamentally sound position blocker who uses all his skills to keep defenders away from the action. Stays square, bends his knees, and gets leverage on opponents. Quickly gets his hands up, keeps his head on a swivel, and is stout at the point of attack. Anchors in pass protection, fights hard, and works until the whistle blows.
Analysis: Vandervelde has been consistent on the college level and really showed himself to be a pro prospect last season. He's a solid lineman who projects as a backup at both guard spots.
