Evaluation James is a big, physical prospect who thrives as a traditional, inline tight end. Great size with height and length that suggest ample space on frame to get even larger. Strong in the phone booth as a run-blocker. Plays for high school program that runs vast majority of the time. Limited experience as a pass-catcher, but possesses a high ceiling as a receiver because of size and athleticism. Huge catch radius. Built almost like more of an defensive edge player. Raw but gifted. Elite prospect at the tight end position. - Gabe Brooks *****
