Isn't a real gifted athlete in the pass game though. Gets upright off the snap and doesn't really make himself small or explode off the line. Doesn't seem really sudden or slippery when asked to separate from defenders out of his breaks on any level of the field and just really seems to lumber and struggle to separate for himself. Had only 15 catches on the season and isn't an NFL-caliber pass-catching threat. Can catch the football, but isn't going to separate vs. anyone.
Would like to see him staying lower off the football in the run game. His first movement is upright and he gets a bit leggy trying to reach defenders off his body. However, he breaks down well, does a much better job extending his arms into contact and will eventually drop his base and work his legs with better leverage through the play. Has a strong set of hands and sticks to defenders well sealing on the edge and getting a push off the football.
Impression: Has a good-sized frame and some natural power and coordination as a blocker. A free agent type prospect who with the right team could fight for a roster spot as a No. 3 short-yardage/goal-line tight end."
