Michael Caussin
Position: TE
Class: 5Sr
School: James Madison
Conference: Colonial Athletic
HT: 6-5.5
WT: 240
40 Time: 4.81
Biography: Two-year starter who posted career numbers of 25/438/4 as a senior after 18/231/5 the prior year.

Positives: Solid pass-catching tight end who plays faster than his 40 time. Quickly gets off the snap into pass routes, runs well, and is a better-than-average athlete. Effectively adjusts to the errant throw, looks the pass into his hands, and easily makes the reception in stride. Displays both focus and concentration. Bends his knees, blocks with leverage, and seals defenders from the action with good body positioning. Gets vertical and fights to make the difficult reception.

Negatives: Struggles finish and blocks and just marginal blocking strength. Not at tight end consistently creates mismatches in the secondary.

Analysis: Caussin effectively handled his role in James Madison?s offense and offers both size as well is growth potential. He has the skills necessary to eventually develop into a third tight end.
