Scouting Report
Assets: Knew how to get open on option routes, and was clutch when called on in the end zone. A willing blocker who was effective in pass protection and on walling off. Tall and long-armed, which helped him as both a receiver and a blocker.
Flaws: Injuries slowed his progress. Dropped too many passes, and didn't possess field-stretching wheels. Wasn't a bulldozer as a blocker. Didn't play a very physical game despite his massive frame.
Career Potential: All-round solid starter at tight end.
