Grade: 3.34

BIO: Caught seven passes for 96 yards and one score as a senior after 10-105-1 the prior year and career numbers of 16-172-1 when he started eight games as a sophomore.

POSITIVES: Hard working tight end that does not stand out in any single aspect of the game. Extends nicely pulling the ball out of the air, catches the pass away from his frame and runs well after the reception. Blocks with forward lean, effectively uses hand technique in pass protection and works to keep opponents away. Walls defenders out of the action with good body positioning.

NEGATIVES: Not quick off the snap, lacks foot speed and bends at the waist which hurts his balance. Not dominant at the point of attack as a blocker nor does he make many plays down the field in a pass catching role.

ANALYSIS: Efficient and gives good effort but has been minimally productive throughout college. May catch on with a team that keeps three tight ends.

PROJECTION: Undrafted Free Agent
