BIOGRAPHY: Junior college transfer who totaled 6/68 last season when he missed five games with an injury. All-Conference selection as a junior after totaling 11/111/1.

POSITIVES: Athletic tight end who is a developmental prospect. Explodes off the snap, plays with good pad level and gets leverage on opponents. Quick out to the second level, plays with a nasty attitude and always looking for someone hit. Works hard and plays assignment football. Runs well laterally, uses his frame to shield away defenders and extends to grab the pass from the air.

NEGATIVES: Possesses marginal blocking strength and rarely moves defenders off the line. Struggles to make the difficult reception.

ANALYSIS: Sykes has flashed ability the past two years yet has been a minimal part of Morgan State offense. He is a practice-squad prospect with a good amount of upside potential and offers the physical skills to develop into a third tight end.

PROJECTION: Undrafted Free Agent
