Blake Jackson, TE, Oklahoma State

Browns, UDFA. Enters a Browns TE corps with a lot of other bodies, but only one that will definitely stick – Jordan Cameron. Cameron’s presence and his lack of blocking ability will probably keep him from having much immediate success, but he has the receiving skills to be an effective contributor in time.

All-Star Games: Shrine Game and South Carolina All-Star Bowl.

Positives: Average hand size. Though he’s too small for a tight end, he has adequate size for an H-back, and was usually used as a move tight end in college. Long arms for wide catch radius. Above-average speed. Above-average acceleration, and he gets off the line quickly and into his routes. Good, soft hands. Good vertical leap in end zone and looks agile. Fair concentration on contested passes. Above-average downfield blocker who stays latched on and maintains leverage and can knock back defenders on initial impact.

Negatives: Below-average height and bulk for a tight end. Sometimes seems to misjudge passes in the air, and will mistime his jumps. Did not get much experience in college as in-line tight end in college, but as a move tight end. Not especially quick hands and may have some trouble with fast passes. Questionable quickness and seems to have to dial it down a lot to get in and out of breaks.

Projection: Probably no need to draft.
