Greg Powers Signing Day Evaluation: It is hard to give a great breakdown on Cross because he does a lot of everything. He could be an excellent guard in college because he moves well, but has the size and reach up front to also play tackle. He is effective at run blocking and pass blocking and can run. He plays with a high motor and has the mean streak that you look for in a lineman. He takes every snap with the defender across from him very seriously, every snap.
