Travis Dekker
SI Grade
2.67
Position: Class:
5Sr
School: Conference: Ht., Wt.:
6-4, 242
40 Time:
4.89

BIOGRAPHY: Three-year starter awarded all-Conference mention as a junior. Pass-catching totals last season included 13/129/2 after career totals of 25/382/2 as a junior.

POSITIVES: Dekker is a solid football player with poor size/speed numbers. His potential at the next level would be on a team that keeps three tight ends.

NEGATIVES: Marginal speed, and does not create mismatches in the secondary. Not a dominant drive blocker.

ANALYSIS: Hard-working tight end with marginal athletic skills. Fluid releasing off the line, works routes and extends his hands to offer the quarterback a nice target. Uses his frame to shield away opponents, and displays above-average quickness in his game. Works blocks hard, stays with the play, and shields defenders from the action.

PROJECTION: FA
