Height Weight 40 Grade
6'4 260 4.85 3.33
Three-year starter who also saw extensive action as a true freshman. Receiving numbers were 23/212/9.2/0 as a senior, after 27/273/10.1/0 during his junior campaign.

Tough, nasty player and one of the better blocking tight ends. Bends his knees, stays square and tenacious. Strong at the point of attack, turns opponents out run blocking or anchors in pass protection. Alert, aware and helps out the offensive tackle. Quick blocking on the second level and looks to take opponents out. Good eye/hand coordination as a pass catcher but for the most part not a natural receiver and has a tough time making the difficult reception. Has the potential to get bigger and the demeanor necessary to be an effective third tight end at the next level. Free Agent.
