BIOGRAPHY: Spot starter the past three seasons. Posted 12 catches for 155 yards and two TDs in eight games as a senior after a career-best 21 receptions during his junior campaign.
POSITIVES: Efficient college tight end with no outstanding aspect to his game. Intelligent, stays with assignments and works until the whistle blows. Solid position blocker who seals defenders from the action. Plays with good body control, adjusts to the throw and effectively uses the sidelines.
NEGATIVES: Not quick into routes. Possesses marginal playing speed. Not a dominant blocker.
ANALYSIS: Solid for the past three years at Michigan, Ecker has the abilities to make it as a third tight end in the NFL.
