Player Notes Pros

  • Possesses the size, muscular frame, & physical traits you look for in a TE prospect

  • Big bodied receiver who has enough savvy to abuse linebackers & safeties in coverage

  • Incredible receiving threat with size, release ability and great hands over the middle

  • At his best in congested areas in middle of the field, excellent at boxing out defenders

  • A lot of reps with his hand in the dirt, promising an accelerated transition to the pros

  • Possesses the functional strength & physicality to hold his own from an in-line position

  • Great athlete with good blend of long speed, agility & elusiveness in the open field

  • Extremely productive at the catch point, reliable hands catcher & jump ball specialist

  • Shows the footballs IQ to align in multiple places over the course of a game

  • He shows good toughness to catch a seam over the middle when contact is imminent

  • Shows the ability to run after the catch, accelerating & then stringing moves together 

Player Notes Cons


  • Burst & acceleration are only average, stronger defenders can hang tough with him

  • Blocking foundation doesn't always provide results, times when his feet break down

  • Underdeveloped route running technique & mental processing against man coverage

  • Needs to play with better pad level & leverage to be more a more consistent blocker

  • More of a “Y” than he is and “F” but although may be a bit undersized to be an ideal “Y”

  • Doesn’t do much to threaten vertically in the passing game, mediocre route runner
