BIOGRAPHY: All-Conference selection last season after posting 45/575/2. Started four games as a freshman and finished with 31/372/3.

POSITIVES: Slender pass-catching tight end who looks more like a tall wide receiver. Sells routes, comes back to the ball, and adjusts to the errant throw. Fluid moving about the field, easily makes the reception in stride, and catches the ball away from his frame. Quickly gets into blocks and plays with good technique.

NEGATIVES: Possesses a thin lower body and lacks strength as a blocker. Tends to round off routes.

ANALYSIS: Finley is a sure-handed pass-catching tight end who mistakenly looks like a possession receiver at times. He could find a home in a system that puts him in motion and takes advantage of his offensive skills.

PROJECTION: Late Fifth Round
