Austin Hooper   #81 TE

Height: 6-4   Weight: 254   Age: 24

Born: 10/29/1994 San Mateo , CA

College: Stanford

Experience: 4th season

High School: De La Salle HS [Concord, CA]









Draft 2016

Pick No.81

Selected By: Atlanta Falcons

Round: 3

Pick (Overall): 18 (81)

Pick Analysis: Stanford has become "Tight End U" over the past few years, with former Cardinal contributors Zach Ertz, Levine Tiololo, Coby Fleener and Jim Dray enjoying good NFL careers. Hooper's next in line, leaving for the pros after his redshirt sophomore season. His father actually played at San Diego State, but his uncle, Greg, suited up for Stanford as a fullback from 1979-1982. Those genes were obvious during his two years on the field, first as a redshirt freshman in 2014 where he earned Freshman All-American and second-team All-Pac-12 honors (40-499, two scores). He helped Stanford win a conference championship in his second season, garnering several honors (Mackey Award finalist, third-team AP All-American, first-team All-Pac-12) by catching 34 passes for 438 yards and six touchdowns.
