BIOGRAPHY: Two-year starter awarded all-Conference honors since his junior season. Pass- catching totals last season included 24/176
after 54/553/4 as a junior.
POSITIVES: Purvis has been a consistent player at Boston College, yet he has no single outstanding trait to his game for the next level.
Overrated by NFL scouts coming into the season, he could catch on as a third tight end.
NEGATIVES: Minimal strength as a blocker and gets little movement. Does not possess the speed to be downfield threat.
ANALYSIS: Solid pass-catching tight end with marginal upside. Quickly releases into routes, nicely adjusts to the pass, and extends
his hands, reaching back to grab the errant ball from the air. Reliable hand catcher who looks the pass in and makes the difficult
reception with defenders draped on him. Blocks with good leverage and works assignments.
