MAC Ht., Wt.: 6'4, 255 40 Time: 4.86 Grade: 3.16
BIO: Two-year starter who began his career at Georgia. Posted receiving numbers of 30/233/3 as a senior after 30/320/2 the prior season.
POSITIVES: Solid tight end prospect with a complete game. Fluid releasing off the line into pass routes, comes back to the ball or follows the quarterback across the field and works to make himself an available target. Extends his hands pulling the pass out of the air and makes the difficult reception in traffic. Gets past the marker on third down and mentally alert in all aspects. Good position blocker who works to stay square and uses angles to wall defenders from the play.
NEGATIVES: Narrow-based player not explosive into blocks. Does not make plays into the secondary as a receiver.
ANALYSIS: An efficient football player, Rader does not stand out in any single aspect of his game or hold much upside for the next level. Efficient and workmanlike he could catch on for a team that keeps three tight ends.
