    Most obvious thing that stands out is his obvious size. The next is how smooth he is in his movements. For a man that size he seems to glide with each step and this starts with his quick feet that allow him to pitch and turn for good, smooth movement. Shows a natural inclination to catch with his hands. Would like to see some more of him high pointing to confirm but given his athleticism and hands, he should be a very dangerous jump ball threat. Seems to attack blockers and but not enough or consistently enough to be an every down TE, though I do think he could do very well situationally there. His body and athleticism are a dream for the creative offensive mind. Can line up anywhere and pretty much do any thing. Hopefully the measurements confirm the film and I see him going late Round 1 to late round 3.

    Game watched Michigan vs Michigan State 2013:

    Showed ability to come up with a jump ball, attacked the ball in the air once or twice in this game while coming down with the catch. At times it looked like he struggled to catch the ball in traffic I saw quite a few drops in this situation but there was also tight coverage. On one throw he ran a great route breaking inside I thought there was some contact on the break which may have slowed him down but the ball was in front, to his credit though he dove to attempt the catch and came up just short, may have made it without the contact right before the break. Thought he had shown flashes of his playmaking and catching ability but also dropped quite a few passes as well. He can lineup outside as a receiver or in the slot he can also run routes off the line as the tight end. He can be placed all over the field to be a mismatch and take advantage of the size or athletic ability. I believe he needs a little grooming and will likely go in the middle rounds anywhere from 2-4 in this years draft class.
