Analysis

Strengths

Played in pro­-style offense at Oregon State. Had to work combo blocks and learn to pass protect while there. Plays with adequate width of base and isn't afraid to throw his nose into the blocking game and give effort. Big target with natural hands in space.

Weaknesses

Tight-hipped with a lack of desired athleticism. Once he catches the ball, it is a wrap. Won't get yards after the catch if challenged. One-speed route-­runner unable to separate from man coverage. Takes time to gear down into breaks. Functional strength as edge-setter needs to improve.

Draft Projection

Priority free agent

Bottom Line

Used both standing and in­line, but will have to prove he can play with his hand in the dirt to make it in the pros. Stiff, with limited athleticism, Hamlett must improve his play strength at the point of attack and make his way as a blocking tight end to have a shot.
