Three-year starter that saw extensive action as a redshirt freshman. Totaled 34/362/10.6/4 during his senior season after 18/211/11.7/1 as a junior and 22/235/10.7/6 the prior year.
Technically sound tight end that's yet to meet his potential. Blocks with forward lean, stays low to the ground and gets exceptional leverage on opponents. Keeps his feet moving in pass protection, displays adequate abilities to block the edge and looks for someone to hit. Uses his body to shield away opponents and protect the pass as a receiver, sized well and wins out in battles. Comes back to the ball, runs solid routes and makes the tough grab over the middle. Lacks a feel for the game, not on the same page as his quarterback nor is he a natural receiver as he fights the ball and lacks the strong hands. Not effective using blocking angles. Displayed a lot of talent as a sophomore but his play has leveled off since. A good athlete that someone will take a chance on late and hope to develop down the road. Early Seventh Round.
