BIO: Used sparingly as a starter the past three seasons and totaled 6 receptions as a senior after 13 the prior year.
POSITIVES: Big blocking tight end who does not stand out in any aspect. Strong at the point, effective with his hands and controls opponents once engaged in a block. Works hard in every area of the field and displays adequate strength. Solid pass catcher who displays the ability to pull the ball out of the air.
NEGATIVES: Not quick off the snap and at times gets stuck in his stance. Not a threat catching the ball down the field and rarely involved in the offense. Does not finish his blocks.
ANALYSIS: Estes has the size to develop into an offensive tackle, though he may be better off on a team that keeps three tight ends and uses him as a blocker in short-yardage situations.
