PLAYERS
Steve Maneri
Position: TE
Class: 4Sr
School: Temple
Conference: Mid-American
HT: 6-7
WT: 271
40 Time: 4.81
Biography: Two years starter who totaled 12/134/2 as a senior after 14/150/4 the prior year.

Positives: Large, powerful, tight end who is dominant blocking on the line of scrimmage. Jolts opponents at the point of attack, stays square and rides defenders off the line. Quickly gets into blocks, plays with a nasty attitude and easily controls opponents once engaged in a block. Seals defenders from the action with good body positioning or blocks down and completely removes them from the action. Effectively extends his hands to make the reception away from his frame.

Negatives: Rarely involved in the offense at Temple. Marginal speed nothing more than a short range target.

Analysis: Maneri is a powerful prospect who could well be the best blocking tight end in this year's draft. He will also get consideration at offensive tackle based on his size. Mangeri is a solid late round pick who can be used as a team?s blocking tight end or developmental tackle prospect.

Projection: 7th
