Scouting Report
Assets: Pretty efficient and effective as a blocker, and a solid target as a receiver: uses his large, sure hands and good size well as a mid-range outlet option in the passing game. Fairly smooth and polished overall, with ideal size for a pro tight end.
Flaws: Not a powerful or mauling pass protector, despite blocking being his primary tool as a pro. Isn't explosive downfield when called upon as a receiver, and has little experience as an offensive go-to option.
Career Potential: Block-first tight end with a solid all-round game.
