Rams, UDFA. Joins a TE corps that has Jared Cook and Lance Kendricks. All three are at least adequate tight ends, but I think Bayer may be better suited by a move to fullback. He likely won’t have any fantasy value.
All-Star Games: Shrine Game.
Positives: Adequate height. Above-average bulk and hand size. Also has experience as a holder on FGs. Fair balance after contact. Above-average hands. Can snag fast passes and adjust fairly well. Can seal the edge as a run blocker and may be improving – looked fairly comfortable from a fullback position at the Shrine Game. Surprisingly elusive after the catch for his size. Above-average balance after contact. Above-average concentration and hands on contested passes. Adequate track speed and lateral quickness.
Negatives: Has some trouble grabbing fast passes. As an in-line run blocker, he looks confused when he has to move to find who to block. Below-average upper-body strength.
Projection: No need to draft.
