Pollak moved into the starting lineup as a sophomore, and did not let go of the job. He started 31 consecutive games to close out his Sun Devil career, earning All Pac 10 honors as a junior and senior.
Pollak is an intelligent lineman that is rarely out of position. He sets up quickly off the snap, stays low, and plays with very good balance. He shows good agility in a short area, and can get out and block on the move. Pollak has a mean streak on the field, and does not stop until the whistle blows.
Pollak is not very stout at the point of attack. He will not drive defenders off the ball, and can be pushed around by stronger interior lineman. He will need to get stronger in the NFL to be able to hold his ground more consistently.
Pollak has moved to the top of most center boards, and will likely be the first center selected. He is a guy who will play hard and battle, but will not overpower defenders. He is a solid, steady center and should be a nice addition to an NFL interior line.
