Cowboys, UDFA. Has a ton of receiving ability with enough blocking ability to stay on the field to contribute. On the Cowboys, he’s behind Jason Witten and Gavin Escobar – and possibly James Hanna. Should be able to beat out Hanna to make the final roster. Could be a heavy contributor if put into game action.
All-Star Games: Medal of Honor Bowl and Shrine Game. Former transfer from Stanford.
Positives: Great height. Good bulk. Above-average hand size. Adequate speed. Good hands and can extend and snag passes well. Shows good effort on off-target passes and will dive and catch at full extension. Fair concentration with the ball in the air, and he can catch the ball when he knows a hit is coming. Gets into his routes quickly and can outmuscle defensive backs. Willing run blocker who improved his run blocking effort at the Shrine Game. Fair downfield blocker. Above-average pass blocker. Adequate in-line run blocker. Showed versatility at Shrine Game practices, where he also worked as a running back. Changes directions pretty smoothly. Adequate track speed for the position.
Negatives: Though he is willing run blocker, he tended to give up too easily in college. Below-average ball security technique. Is a little slow getting off the line. Below-average upper body strength.
Projection: In this offense, he probably has a TE2 ceiling. Draftable in the third round or later in dynasty rookie drafts.
