Crockett Gillmore, TE, Colorado State

Ravens, Round 3. Any tight end who goes to the Ravens, you should expect to do well. Even though Gillmore went much earlier than I expected – I had four tight ends ranked ahead of him at the time – I have to believe was picked by the Ravens because they see something in him. But I still don’t expect him to be much of a fantasy factor as much as an effective piece of the puzzle in Baltimore.

All-Star Games: Late addition to Senior Bowl.

Positives: Good height and bulk. Great hand size. Above-average hands and can extend well. Knows how to find soft spots in the zone. Above-average body control, and adjusts fairly well to off-target passes. Versatile and switched back and forth from tight end to defensive end to tight end in college. Adequate lower body explosiveness. Below-average ability to change directions.

Negatives: Below-average track speed for the position. His hands aren’t especially quick, and he will let fast passes get through them. Below-average route runner, and needs to get better positioning on his routes to present a target to his quarterback. Doesn’t get good separation in his routes – he doesn’t move fluidly, is slow into his breaks, and telegraphs his cuts. Injured hamstring in pro day workout.

Projection: Feel free to draft him later in dynasty rookie drafts, but don’t expect a lot of production from him behind Dennis Pitta.
