Biography: "All-Conference selection as a senior after totaling 39/629/4. Took a redshirt season in 2009 after splitting time as the starting tight end the prior year, when he posted 32/519/4."
Positives: "Fairly athletic pass-catching tight end with an upside. Fluid releasing off the line of scrimmage, runs solid routes, and quickly gets into breaks. Displays the speed to get into the secondary to make plays, nicely adjusts to errant throws, and uses his frame the box out opponents. Displays good eye/hand coordination and catches the ball away from his frame."
Negatives: Unnecessarily leaves his feet at times. Must improve his overall playing balance. Gives effort blocking yet must improve his playing strength.
Analysis: "Housler possesses the size/speed numbers and football skills to play at the next level, but he is still rough around the edges. He's a potential third tight end who could help a team two or three years down the road."
