Scouting Report
Fantastically athletic, he had elite speed and power for the tight end position. Plucked the ball from the air and could be a go-to playmaker for his offense. Caused matchup headaches because few linebackers could run with him, and he was also a physical and efficient blocker. Was prone to mistakes and penalties at times, and would also drop his share of passes. Did not track deep balls well and did not always fight for balls in traffic. Disappeared as an offensive playmaker for stretches ,despite his top-tier tools. Played a long, long time and was quite durable, despite a history of concussions.
Long Range Potential: Incredibly athletic, quality tight end.
