According to Web sites, this what they’re saying about John Estes:
01/20/2010 – EAST-WEST SHRINE RISERS: C John Estes, Hawaii: Scouts were not surprised when the 6-2, 295-pound Estes had the shortest arm length (30.25 inches) among the offensive linemen. Whether it was getting his hands inside the jersey of UNLV nose tackle Martin Tevaseu or blocking down for one of his guards, the Rainbow Warrior simply went out and did his job on every play. Small but strong and technically sound centers can find a home in the NFL, so expect a team to pick up Estes somewhere in the late rounds. – Chad Reuter, The Sports Xchange, NFLDraftScout.com
01/19/2010 – East-West Shrine Tuesday Practice: Hawaii center John Estes isn’t a household name, lacks size and isn’t outstanding in any one area. But the way he stood up and pushed back 6-1, 326-pound Stanford tackle Ekom Udofia and his ability to move his feet to help either guard on double-teams is exactly what teams like to see from a mid-to-late-round center prospect (think Green Bay Packers center Scott Wells). – Chad Reuter, The Sports Xchange, NFLDraftScout.com
