BIOGRAPHY: Former wide receiver moved in and out of the starting lineup the past three seasons. Senior-year totals included 29/328/3 after 15/171/3 as a junior.
POSITIVES: Big, athletic tight end who has underachieved on the college level. Runs well, sells routes, and fluid moving about the field. Adjusts to the errant throw, displays a good sense of anticipation, and flashes soft as well as reliable hands. Makes the difficult catch with defenders draped on him. Blocks with good pad level and fundamentals.
NEGATIVES: Loses his focus and lets catchable throws slip through his hands. Does not play to his size and gets minimal movement as a blocker. Marginally productive in college. Has had off-field problems and has character concerns.
ANALYSIS: Strong has flashed ability the past three years, yet he shows little consistency to his game and has never taken the next step. He plays soft and lacks intensity, which will destroy his chances at the next level.
