Scouting Report: TE Anthony Fasano

With the No. 53 selection in the draft, the Cowboys selected Notre Dame's Anthony Fasano.

TE Anthony Fasano 40: 4.73 College: Notre Dame Year: 4Jr

Bio: Full-time starter the past two seasons. Junior totals were 45/564/2 after 27/367/4 the prior year.

Pos: Athletic tight end and natural pass-catching threat. Quickly releases into routes, adjusts to the errant throw or lays out for the difficult reception. Extends making the reception away from his frame, displays solid concentration and works to pick up yardage after the catch. Consistently finds the open space in the defense. Blocks with excellent pad level, jolting defenders at the point of attack.

Neg: Does not always win out in battles. Marginally strong and cannot finish blocks.

Analysis: Possessing a solid combination of intelligence, athleticism and intensity, Fasano offers starting potential at the next level as a move tight end. Could be an effective blocker in time as he physically matures.
