Bruce Figgens, the tight end from Shaw High School in Columbus, Ga., measured 6-3 and 240 pounds at the Scout.com Combine held in Atlanta in April. To his credit, he doesn't look that big on the football field. He looks more like a wide receiver. He definitely blocks like a tight end though.
While this highlight tape shows his ability as a receiver, most of his highlight
tape is of him as a blocker. Because the blocking of a tight end doesn't show up

That's one reason why he has offers from the likes of Georgia, Auburn, and
Florida State among others.
