Biography: Two-year starter also saw extensive action with the first team as a sophomore. All-Conference selection as a senior with receiving totals of 30/384/4. Junior totals included 24 receptions and 282 receiving yards.
Positives: Hard-working tight end who gets the most from his ability, he displays terrific blocking vision, plays with a nasty attitude and works hard to finish off defenders. Blocks down well on opponents, gets movement at the point of attack, and anchors in pass protection. Possesses adequate hands, extending to make the reception away from his frame and pulling the ball from the air. Nice overall sense of awareness on the field.
Negatives: Marginal speed in his game and not a downfield threat. Occasionally lets some catchable passes bounce off his hands. Lacks classic size for a blocking tight end.
Analysis: Pfahler is a hard-working prospect yet a limited athlete with minimal upside at the next level. His attitude and approach to the game could help him catch on as a third tight end.
