Endowed with an all­-day NFL body type. Carries long limbs and big hands on a muscular, athletic frame. Comfortable hands in traffic and can make the heavily contested catch. Not afraid of taking a hit over the middle to secure the throw. Fluid mover and has the flexibility to sink and run sharp angle routes. Has body control and catch radius to pluck it high or low. Has size and ability to handle in­line blocking assignments and will battle once he?s locked into a one-­on-­one fight. Was trusted to help in pass protection. Lined up wide, in slot and as both move and in­line tight end. Finds his place against zone and works himself into open, easy throws for quarterbacks on the move.


Allows defender to crowd him on seam routes. Will need to improve hand fighting and leverage to create late separation for catches. Needs to be tougher at point of attack as a blocker. As move tight end, didn?t always fire downhill into his iso ­blocks. Allows defensive ends and outside linebackers to bring the fight to him. Routes need refining for better separation against man coverage. Run after ­catch potential not realized because his legs are easy targets for secondary to chop down.
