Notes:

Redshirted in 2007. Moved from tight end to right tackle in ’08 and started 10-of-12 games. Moved back in ’09 and started all 13 games at tight end, catching 10 passes for 59 yards and a TD. Started 12-of-14 games in ’10, grabbing 6-59-1. Caught a career-best 21-235-0 in 12 games (11 starts) in ’11.

Positives:

Outstanding size with broad shoulders — able to match up with defensive ends and seal the edge. Strong upper body. Creates movement in the run game — engages and churns his legs. Functional short receiver. Tough, very durable, experienced, four-year starter. Solid character. Hardworking, dependable, accountable team player. 

Negatives:

Slow-footed and unsudden. Stiff and straight-linish. Limited athletic ability to adjust. Can do a better job generating power from his base. Average receiving production. Slow into routes and cannot stretch the seam. Not a crisp route runner and struggles to separate vs. man coverage. Cannot elevate or create after the catch. Could play with more of an edge.

Summary:

Big, tough, smart, competitive, “Y” tight end with the size, strength and grit to compete for a reserve/blocking role.
