BIOGRAPHY: Returned to the starting lineup as a senior and totaled 12/150/2. Played eight games as a junior in .04, totaling 24/308/3 before fracturing his left leg, which caused him to sit on the sidelines for a year and a half. Totaled 22/484/3 as a sophomore.
POSITIVES: One-time playmaking tight end who has been fractionally effective since his broken leg. Natural pass catcher who adjusts to the errant throw, displays good concentration and comes away with the tough grab. Showed the ability to get down the seam.
NEGATIVES: Seemed haphazard and lacked balance last season. Lacks overall quickness and not effective as a blocker.
ANALYSIS: At one time a prospect with first-round ability, Herian has struggled since his leg injury in .04. May have a difficult time passing medical exams, and has a long way to go to return to his prior dominance.
