BIO: Part-time starter who totaled 12/121/3 as a senior after 20/182/2 the prior year. High-character prospect that's earned several state and national awards for his charity work off the field.
POSITIVES: Big-bodied tight end best in a blocking capacity. Naturally strong, gets movement from run blocks or controls opponents once engaged at the point of attack. Displays hand technique to get off jams at the line of scrimmage or using them to protect the quarterback as a pass-blocker. Stays with the action, works hard and looks to finish the play.
NEGATIVES: Not quick off the snap, and a big and lumbering player. Not a natural knee-bender, lacks balance as well as footwork in pass protection. Not explosive in any aspect of his game.
ANALYSIS: Owens is a prototypical third tight end who must earn his wage as a long snapper. Has had success handling the snapping duties in the past and has growth potential which would only enhance his abilities as an in-line blocker.
