    Strong Points: Thick build with good upper- and lower-body strength. Strong blocker who is always looking to finish. Breaks down and adjusts in space to make open-field blocks. Catches the ball cleanly, flashing good run-after-catch skills.

    Weak Points: Short and slow for the position. Really only one year of production. Raw as a route runner and his route tree is minimal. Needs to improve hand use as a blocker.

    The Way We See It: Wesco was only a one-year starter at West Virginia after originally enrolling at Lackawanna junior college before transferring to Morgantown. It wasn't until last season that he earned significant play time, coming up big with 26 receptions for 366 yards. Wesco is on the short side for a "Y" tight end but has long arms and a thick, muscular build. As a blocker, he will get after his opponent but can be technique-poor in his hand use and in getting proper positioning. He can line up at the "Y" or as a wing and be effective with his blocking. Overall, I see him as strictly a "Y" tight end at the NFL level. His lack of speed negates his ability to play as a "move" guy. Though raw, he has talent and will get better with experience. He's a late-round guy with upside but also some limitations.
