Mickey Plyler on Bockhorst: Bockhorst is the highest rated of the incoming offensive lineman. He is a unique prospect with a great personality. He has natural leadership skills. Players tend to gravitate towards him. He seems to be one of the leaders of this class with players like Brice and Rodgers. I like his film but we didn't get a chance to see him as a senior due to a knee injury. He reminds me of several recent offensive line takes because he plays with a nasty streak.
