Scouting Report
Ideally-sized for an NFL tight end and makes the most of that size on jump balls. A strong leaper who can be very hard to stop in the end zone. Deceptively agile running routes and selling fakes, and has enough speed to stretch the field a bit. Active and willing as a blocker. Not very explosive in his movements and sometimes get slowed up in routes by big, fast defenders. Needs more muscle mass for the NFL but may slow down a bit with more weight. Suffers his share of drops. Still developing his overall fundamentals. Is a bit injury-prone.
Long Range Potential: Star tight end (when healthy).
