Height  6-5
Weight  306
College  Virginia
The winner of the 2008 Jacobs Trophy, recognizing the top blocker in the ACC, Monroe is considered one of the more talented offensive linemen in this year's draft and should be an early pick...A Second Team All-American as a senior in 2008 by several sources, Monroe was a two-year starter for the Cavaliers and developed into an imposing figure that few opponents could battle on even ground...The starting left tackle was a crucial piece of a Virginia offensive line that allowed an ACC-low 16 sacks this past season...Honorable mention All-ACC in 2007, Monroe missed a pair of games during the campaign due toinjury and did not allow a single sack during the regular season...Mostly a backup during his first two seasons in Charlottesville, Monroe has grown considerably in just two years and will only get better in the right situation.
