Conference: Atlantic Coast
40 Time: 4.90
Biography: Part-time starter since his freshman season. Missed extensive time with a knee injury as a senior and finished the year with totals of 13/182/2 in just six games. Junior totals included 8/83/1.
Positives: King-sized tight end prospect best as a blocker on the line of scrimmage. Fluid releasing off the line into routes, nicely adjusts to the errant throw, and displays good eye/hand coordination. Moves well on his feet, gets out to the second level, and seals linebackers from the action. Blocks with excellent knee bend, strong at the point of attack, and works hard until the whistle blows.
Negatives: Marginal speed and only a short yardage target as a pass catcher. Runs hot and cold with his blocking in the past.
Analysis: Piurowski has offensive tackles size yet moves well enough to be used as a tight end. He has definite possibilities as a third tight end at the next level if used primarily as a blocker.
