Strong Points

Height, speed, hands, run-after-catch abilities. Growth potential to 255. Dominated lower level of competition. Able to get separation. Strong East-West Shrine game practices

Weak Points

Lacks strength and power to play in-line at the NFL level. Played at a low level of competition. Run blocking needs work. Raw and needs to improve his route running.

The Way We See It

A fifth-year senior and a late-developing guy. Coming out of high school, he was a low-level recruit and went to Drake. Redshirted there for his freshman year, then became a four-year starter. Got better every year. Can run very well for a tight end, has great hands and can adjust to the ball. Will have to improve his route running at the NFL level. He is not a blocker and at present lacks the strength to block at the NFL level. Will be a "move" tight end and once he adjusts to NFL play, will cause mismatch problems because of his speed. He is an eventual starter in the league and has upside.
