Scouting Report
Assets: The model for a star NFL tight end: huge and physical but also very sure-handed. Blocks like an O-lineman but is very agile, and fast enough to stretch the defense. Takes several tacklers to bring down once he has the ball, and some simply bounce off him. Makes clutch catches.
Flaws: Not particularly fluid and his speed is good but not great. A bit stiff at times and takes a lot of contact, raising durability questions. Could be a more powerful blocker with his size.
Career Potential: Star tight end.
