Braxton Deaver, TE, Duke – 2016

Positives: Was a redshirt senior. Good height and adequate bulk for the position. He runs with adequate track speed but above-average game speed for the position. Generally above-average hands and can extend and highpoint well. Good effort for off target passes and will dive. Also runs adequate routes, and often lined up as a wide receiver. Above-average upper-body strength. Fair run blocker who can at least redirect defenders.

Negatives: Used often as a wide receiver and not an inline tight end. Inconsistent concentration, and sometimes looks up field before securing the ball – getting the ball knocked out by defenders or letting passes go through his hands. Below-average vertical leap and broad jump for the position. Below-average lateral quickness and slow ability to change directions with burst in pro day tests. Tore right ACL in August 2014 and missed season.

Projection: Undrafted free agent.
