Round: 4
Pick (Overall): 7 (104)

Pick Analysis: The Bucs add a big, physical tight end to complement Kellen Winslow in their double tight end sets. He will play initially as a blocking tight end on the backside but could also give the team another big target to incorporate into the passing game.

Overview

Stocker has prototypical size for a tight end at the next level, and he could develop into a weapon in the passing game. He is not athletic enough to separate in man coverage, but he runs solid routes and works to find space in zone. He uses his large frame to shield defenders and has very reliable hands to make difficult catches in traffic. He has technical lapses as a blocker, but has the frame, tenacity and strength to develop into a powerful run blocker. Stocker is a blue collar-type player that will likely be selected in the middle rounds.


Strengths

Stocker has a big frame and is thickly built. Runs well for his size and can stretch the field. Possesses good hands and a large catching radius. Finds soft spots in zone coverage and is fearless on crossing routes. Tough kid that is a capable run blocker.

Weaknesses

Lacks the hip fluidity to gain separation in transition and is neutralized in man coverage. Does not have the body control to be a weapon in the red zone. Struggles to make people miss in the open field. Lunges at defenders when pass blocking and is vulnerable to double moves.

Grade

6.0
