Scouting Report
Part of a stellar, dual tight end attack at the University of Iowa with Noah Fant, he arrived in the pros as a fully-formed weapon. Has all the tools to dominate at his position as a receiver and blocker; he combines size, speed and strength to impose his will in the passing game. Finds open space with quick, clean breaks and separates from coverage. Can gobble up yardage after the catch. Is adept at handling run-blocking assignments too, though he could use more muscle to handle speed rushers. Must continue to refine his blocking technique and become an every-down asset.
Long Range Potential: Talented, all-around tight end with good upside.
