Nick Vannett   #81 TE

Height: 6-6   Weight: 261   Age: 26

Born: 3/6/1993 Westerville , OH

College: Ohio State

Experience: 4th season

High School: Westerville Central HS [OH]









Draft 2016

Pick No.94

Selected By: Seattle Seahawks

Round: 3

Pick (Overall): 32 (94)

Pick Analysis: Vannett grew up in Westerville, Ohio, where OSU football is King. Though he was not utilized to his full potential in the Buckeyes’ passing attack, there’s no reason that he shouldn't be as valued as former teammate Jeff Heuerman, who was a 2015 third-round pick of the Denver Broncos. He has NFL size and hands, earning honorable mention All-Big Ten selection with 19 catches for 162 yards in 2015. Vannett had similar production (19-220) but more red zone targets (scoring five times) as a junior after spare usage as a redshirt freshman (two starts, 9-123) and sophomore (8-80, one TD).
