Draft Analysis:

"One of the best two-way tight ends." -- Daniel Jeremiah

  • 6'6" Height
  • 33 3/4" Arm Length
  • 260LBS. Weight
  • 10 3/8" Hands

Overview

Receiver-defensive end who also wrestled, played basketball and ran track as a Texas prep. As a true freshman in 2010, injuries to other players forced a switch from tight end to defensive end in August — tallied 11 tackles, two for loss and a sack in nine games played (wore jersey No. 99). Moved back to tight end during 2011 spring practice and was the Rams’ leading receiver in 2011, when he started all 12 games and recorded 45 receptions for 468 yards (10.4-yard average) and four touchdowns. Started 10 of 11 games played in 2012, managing 19-263-2 (13.8). Did not play against Hawaii (torn left labrum). Started all 14 games in 2013 and caught 47-577-2 (12.3). Did not lift at the combine because of a strained left elbow.

Analysis

Strengths

Has a good compact frame with long arms and big hands. Chippy, competitive blocker -- latches on and plays through the whistle. Good finisher. Natural hands catcher. Catches in a crowd and will shake off a hit and run through contact. Rises to a challenge and matched up well as a base blocker vs. Alabama's Adrian Hubbard. Functional positional, pass protector. Very durable.

Weaknesses

Underdeveloped lower body with limited overall weight-room strength. Not a nuanced route runner to create separation and lacks polish releasing off the line (pinballed too easily). Limited suddeness and burst out of his breaks. Marginal creativity after the catch. Lacks top-end speed to threaten the seam. Has been a bit of a china doll and long-term durability requires evaluation. Recorded a 1.77-second 10-yard time, tied for slowest among tight ends at the combine.

Draft Projection

Rounds 6-7

Bottom Line

A try-hard, developmental blocker capable of catching on as a No. 3 tight end with continued improvement in the weight room. Possesses above-average base blocking ability, hands and foot speed to carve a role.
