Biography: Started eight games as a senior after sporadically playing with the first team the prior three years. Senior receiving numbers included 7 receptions/96 yards/1 touchdown after he had 4/27/2 as a junior.
Positives: Athletic tight end who never developed a complete game. Plays with good knee bend and is quick off the snap. Displays strength as a blocker and turns linebackers from the play. Runs well on the field, nicely adjusts to the errant throw and flashes ability downfield.
Negatives: Does not display natural hands as a receiver. Lacks the strength necessary to finish blocks.
Analysis: Figgins is a prospect who passes the eyeball test, but is still rough around the edges. He possesses the skills necessary to develop into a third tight end on an NFL roster, but needs to elevate almost every level of his game.
