BIOGRAPHY: Two-year starter awarded all-Conference honors since his junior season. Played in eight games last season, suffering a partial
tear of the MCL in his left knee in the middle of the year. Finished the year with 24/37/2. Junior totals included 30/411/5.
POSITIVES: Mandeville could well have been the most underrated tight end in this year's draft. He offered all the tools needed to be
a starting tight end in the NFL but will not be playing football in the future after being red-flagged by combine doctors
with a heart ailment.
NEGATIVES: Does not show consistent intensity as a blocker, and struggles with opposing linebackers when he should not. Must improve
his blocking balance. Was red-flagged with a heart ailment during medical exams at the combine and was advised to retire
ANALYSIS: Large, athletic pass-catching tight end with great upside. Quickly releases off the line into routes, immediately gets to
top speed, and is a natural pass catcher who displays soft hands. Effortlessly makes the reception in stride, adjusting to
the errant throw or reaching back to grab the pass from the air. Gets vertical and makes acrobatic receptions or regularly
catches the ordinary pass. Gets into the secondary, creates mismatches, and makes the difficult reception in a crowd. Plays
smart football, and finds the open spot in the defense, making himself an available target for the quarterback.
