BIO: Led the team in receiving as a senior, posting 18/205/2 after catching 11/170/4 the prior season, his first at Salisbury State.
POSITIVES: Athletic, yet undeveloped tight end with good upside for the next level. Fluid releasing off the line of scrimmage, tracks the throw and adjusts to grab the ball out of the air. Plays faster than his 40 time and stretches the field vertically. Solid blocker who easily handles one-on-one blocking assignments.
NEGATIVES: Plays in an option offense that reduces the amount of times he touches the ball. Marginal route-running skills that did not show great improvement as a senior.
ANALYSIS: An athletic tight end overlooked due to a lack of production, Acker is one of the better developmental prospects in this draft. Has the size-speed numbers and overall natural skills to eventually develop into a productive NFL tight end.
