Scouting Report
Assets: An active and physical blocker with a great reach who plays like another offensive lineman. Has excellent overall size for the position and is effective and efficient in his blocking. Shows solid hands when looked to for a catch in the short-to-mid-range. Gets good separation and rumbles for yards after the catch.
Flaws: Not very fast so needs to depend on guile and physicality to get open. Doesn't have many moves in open space. His physical style leads to durability issues.
Career Potential: Excellent blocking tight end with deceptively good receiving skills.
