Mickey Plyler on Pollard: It's hard judging offensive linemen from their video of their careers, but I like seeing how they play in their all-star games. Pollard was very impressive in his national all-star game. I was surprised how well he ran. He has a great frame and plays hard but his feet were the biggest surprise. You can see that he is the second best offensive lineman in North Carolina and maybe the second best offensive lineman in the Carolinas.
Reminds Plyler of: Glenn Roundtree
