Player Notes Pros

  • Highly intriguing TE prospect, built like a WR very good agility & burst for a TE 

  • Actually ex-LB, loves physicality & plays with an admirable comfort in the trenches  

  • Loves to stalk-block & pull as well, pretty much anything that gets him on the move 

  • Flexible blocker who understands the power of leverage and length in the trenches

  • Willing to drop his shoulder underneath his opponents & uncoil his hips effectively 

  • Activates hands on the second-level & has good length to win blocks at extension

  • Good technique to carry flowing defenders beyond their angles & finish them in space

  • Uses length well when addressing contested balls at the catch point, wins 50/50's 

  • Has both the requisite hand strength & great concentration to win in the air 

  • Smart & fluid route runner who has the stride length & flexibility to break off routes

  • Speed allows him to create throwing windows in the short & intermediate areas 

  • Frequently wins up the seam as well because of catch excellent radius & long speed

Player Notes Cons

  • Underutilized as a receiver & underdeveloped as a blocker, big potential remains though

  • Route tree was quite limited at Memphis, fits more as a flex TE than in-line player 

  • Misdirection & play-action plays open him up into space by no virtue of his own 

  • Overaggressive route-runner who tries to do too much in his stems & downfield

  • Same traits follow him as a blocker  plays too far over his toes, losing balance

  • Doesn't have great displacement power against defenders because of modest lower body
