Scouting Report
Throws a long shadow as a towering receiver and in-line blocker. Enjoys a physical advantage over most defenders; his tremendous length enables him to reach the high ball and present a prominent target in the end zone. Possesses strength and endurance to play every down. Lacks speed to separate and add yardage after the catch; is slow off the line and lacks acceleration. Is also not a consistent or precise route runner. Leaves coaches wanting more in most aspects of his game.
Long Range Potential: Solid, rotational tight end.
