Strong Points

Ran much better than expected at both the Combine and the Arkansas Pro Day. Already has very good size and has growth potential to 260-plus. Strong run and pass blocker. Can block in-line or on the move. Adequate route runner with good hands. While he isn't elusive, he shows strength as a runner. Competes for the ball in traffic.

Weak Points

Not a deep threat. Doesn't consistently get separation coming out of cuts. Not utilized in the Arkansas offense the way he could be.

The Way We See It

Sprinkle is a throwback tight end in that he is a blocker first and can really help the run game from the "Y" position. Showed at the Combine that he is a good athlete for his size and can play in space. At Arkansas, he was mainly used in-line as a "Y" and rarely flexed out. Has the speed and athleticism to do either. Because of his strong blocking skills, he will more than likely be primarily a "Y" and those guys are hard to find in today's college game. He might not get drafted as high as some of the other "move" tight ends in this draft but he will be in the lineup right away because of his blocking skills. Clubs who have a run first attitude will rate him high.
