Jameson Konz
Round 7, Pick 245
Position: TE
Class: 5Sr
School: Kent State
Conference: Mid-American
HT: 6-3
WT: 225
40 Time: 4.42
Biography: Former defensive lineman who moved to tight end this season and finished the year with receiving totals of 21/98/2. Red-shirted in 2008 after injuring his ankle in the season opener. Junior totals of ?07 included 43/3.5/2 when he lined up at defensive end.

Positives: Incredibly athletic prospect still very rough around the edges. Quickly gets to top speed, fast, and easily gets into the secondary creating mismatches. Runs well, displays above-average awareness and looks the pass into his hands. Flashed big play ability last season.

Negatives: Rarely asked to block and usually lined up in the slot. Drops some very catchable throws and does not consistently come away with the tough grab. Seems stiff in his upper body and does not play with great balance. Must learn to finish blocks.

Analysis: Konz is a tremendous athlete yet a work in progress on the football field. He has the ability to develop into a downfield pass-catching threat and may even be given consideration at outside linebacker based on his dimensions. Konz is a long-term prospect, and at the very least, will end up on a practice squad next season.

Projection: 7-FA
