Overview

A nice receiving tight end/H-back prospect who converted from the wide receiver spot, Myers stood out as a junior with 21 catches for 320 yards and three touchdowns. But his senior season was a washout because of a turf toe. He also missed time in the 2006 and 2007 seasons with leg and groin injuries, respectively. His athleticism and hands got him an invite to the Combine, where he can get on teams' radars as a late-round pick or priority free agent -- if his toe is healthy. Had an arm span of 32 1/4 inches and a hand span of 9 1/2 inches at the combine.

Analysis

Strengths

Positives: Good height, arm length and overall build for an H-back. Still growing, he could gain some mass to play with his hand down. Fast release off the line, and able to threaten the seam due to his height and straight-line speed. Lines up outside, in slot and as an H-back. Good hands; can adjust to high or low throws. Strong runner after the catch who is tough for defensive backs to bring down in the open field. Gives strong effort blocking, holds up adequately against college ends on the line and is able to lock onto smaller defenders in space. Negatives: Durability is a major issue; missed parts of the 2006 and 2007 seasons and all of the 2008 season injuries. Played against a lower level of competition. Probably limited to an H-back spot unless he proves able to handle stronger NFL ends on the line. Inconsistent getting his hands on his target in space and sustaining blocks.
