Scouting Report
An all-rounder at tight end: solid blocking (especially for the run) and above-average catching the football. Brings all the physical elements needed to be a starting NFL tight end: good height, a fantastic wingspan, huge hands, and very solid straight-line speed. Knows how to get open. Plays to the whistle, and has untapped all-round talent. Not all that fluid or explosive off the line, and doesn't have ideal muscle mass to maul defenders. Despite huge mitts he can be inconsistent catching the ball, and needs more work on his fundamentals. Very solid in most areas but doesn't yet stand out in one.
Long Range Potential: Long, well-rounded tight end with starter talent.
