Positive: Hardworking lineman with limited upside. Stays square, works to bend his knees, and keeps his head on a swivel. Fights with his hands throughout the action and is strong at the point of attack. Controls opponents once engaged in a block.
Negative: Lumbers around the field and is not light on his feet. Struggles to adjust. Lacks good footwork in space.
Analysis: Pelc was productive and durable on the college level yet is a marginal athlete who lacks the physical skills for the next level. Getting the most from his abilities, he could make it as an inexpensive backup based on his versatility to play either guard spot."
At UNC, he saw game action in three games as a true freshman in 2007. In 2008, he started the final 10 games at left guard and graded out at about 80% for the season. In 2009, Alan Started all 13 games, including 12 at right guard and one at center. He posted a team-best 78 percent grade on the season, with 38 knock-down blocks.
Strengths: A big, country-strong mauler in the run game. Football young, and can get better. Has the ability to be an emergency center. Immovable object in pass pro and can stone most bull rushers. Room to mature and grow.
Weaknesses: Average overall athleticism for an NFL guard prospect. Not much of a puller. Struggles in space. Confined to being a straight-ahead drive blocker, and a cog in pass pro. Not suited to a zone blocking scheme, or any scheme where you expect the interior linemen to get out and hit moving targets on the second level. Best used in a power running offense with close splits.
Projection: Priority UDFA."
