Conference: Western Athletic
40 Time: 4.96
Biography: "Former walk-on who started four years at Boise State and was awarded all-Conference honors every season since his sophomore campaign. Totals last year included 43/94/1.5, with one interception and two more passes broken up. Junior totals included 41/9/17."
Positives: "Competitive, hardworking defender with marginal athleticism. Plays heads-up football, works to bend his knees, and stays with the action. Fights with his hands throughout the play, keeps his feet driving up the field, and quickly locates the ball."
Negatives: "Lacks bulk, possesses marginal strength, and gets easily pushed from his angle of attack. Lacks top speed and has just marginal quickness."
Analysis: Winterswyk was productive and durable on the college level but does not possess the skills to be a starter in the NFL. He could make it as a backup in a four-man alignment and will also get consideration at the tight end position.
