Pros: He shows good overall athleticism and versatility for the position. In the run game he is good due to his willingness to come off the ball and strike. He demonstrates good technique as an inline blocker and keeps his hands inside. In the passing game he has aligned inline, at “H”, and even flexed out as an “F”. He shows good speed when running seams and other deep routes in the passing game. He demonstrates good toughness to catch the football when contact is imminent. He demonstrates good tracking ability when the ball is in the air. He also displays good, natural hands and rarely allows the ball into his frame.
Cons: He has missed some significant time due to injury. He's not a great route runner in the short to intermediate area. Lacks suddenness in his release off the line of scrimmage, even for a TE. He could have trouble uncovering underneath in the NFL. Needs to improve dropping his weight and getting out of his breaks. He is often in ill advised positions when he is run blocking due to his footwork and ultimately his body position.
