Adam Nissley
Position: TE
Class:  Sr
HT: 6'5"
WT: 266 lbs.
40 Time: 5.01
Conference: Conference USA
Biography: Former right tackle who moved to tight end as a junior and started the following two seasons. Senior totals included 21 receptions/235 yards/1 TD after he had 6/59/1 as a junior.

Positives: Hardworking blocking tight end who gets results. Bends his knees, stays square and gets leverage on opponents. Plays with a nasty attitude and easily controls opponents at the point of attack. Displays the ability to turn opposing defensive linemen off the ball. Extends his hands as a receiver, offering the quarterback a nice target.

Negatives: Displays minimal speed in his game. Nothing more than a short-range target.

Analysis: Nissley is a one-dimensional tight end who is a very good blocker. Unlikely to be drafted, he could make a roster as a third tight end brought onto the field in short-yardage situations.

Projection: FA
