Asante Cleveland, TE, Miami

UDFA. Signed by the 49ers as a UDFA but was released in August and put on their practice squad. Is a solid receiving option with enough blocking skills to find a fit on some team.

All-Star Games: NFLPA Collegiate Bowl.

Positives: Adequate height and good bulk for the position. Great hand size. Above-average routes, and gets into them quickly. Good hands and can extend well. Good effort on off-target passes. Above-average body control and can adjust in midair for off-target passes. Adequate speed. Fair run blocker – will stand his ground with fair leverage.

Negatives: Though he holds his own as a run blocker, he doesn’t seem to drive defenders back. Also seems to lean into his blocks too much.

Projection: Keep an eye on him in fantasy and see if he goes to a less-crowded situation.
