Analysis

Strengths

Very good pro day positional workout. Produced exceptional results at his pro day, blazing a 40-time (4.41) faster than many receivers. Scrappy in-line blocker -- gets in the way. Possesses the vertical speed to stretch the field.

Weaknesses

Undersized -- lacks bulk, bulk strength and power in his body. Does not play to timed speed. Lacks polish in his routes and gears down to catch. Average lateral agility, creativity and elusiveness after the catch. Could stand to improve beating the jam and do a better job finishing blocks. Only a one-year starter.

Draft Projection

Round 7-Priority free agent

Bottom Line

An undersized H-Back from a program with a knack for developing unsung tight end talent, Annen emerged from an exceptional pro day as a fast-riser loaded with upside and possesses raw, moldable traits to become a solid NFL contributor in a "move" role.
