At 6-foot-5 and 240 pounds, Rodriguez oftentimes has leverage few defensive ends possess, and that's what makes him special, according to Fridrich.
And his size projects well on both sides of the ball.
Tulsa Union, though, used him primarily on defense this season with the help of fellow Tulsa commit Blake Mejia moving from guard to tackle.
“I think that in our program we try to put the best guys on the field that we can,” Fridrich said. “Dalton has had a good career for us on the defensive line and to me I think his potential, we have just kind of scratched the surface.”
