BIOGRAPHY: Part-time starter the past two seasons as a rotational tight end. Numbers last season included 10/142/4 after 6/74/1 the previous year.
POSITIVES: Sure-handed pass-catcher with limited upside. Fluid releasing into routes, gets vertical, and pulls the errant throw from the air. Blocks with terrific leverage and gives effort.
NEGATIVES: Not strong at the point and has difficulty controlling opposing linebackers. Lacks the speed to create mismatches in the secondary.
ANALYSIS: Putnam is a hard-working player with limited physical skills. He could find a home in a system that employs an H-back.
PROJECTION: Undrafted Free Agent
