Scouting Report
Assets: Experienced and talented as a receiver. Knows how to get open, has a deceptive burst in the open field, and can be a dependable target. Well-rounded and hard-working as a blocker (especially in run situations).
Flaws: Lacks great raw size for a tight end and isn't fast for an H-back type. Not particularly fluid and lumbers a bit with the ball at times after the catch. Needs to find his NFL niche to get the most out of his solid talent level.
Career Potential: Well-rounded tight end with some upside.
