Solemnly taking the responsibilities for looking for talent at any position, anywhere they can find it, the Jaguars scouts and personnel staff found themselves in the great states of Nevada and Texas looking for more help at tight end. Specifically, the Jaguars were witnessing the pro-days of University of Houston tight end, Rodney Hannah, and University of Nevada tight end, Anthony Pudewell.
Anthony Pudewell is a hard-working, consistent tight end from Nevada. Pudewell stands 6'4", 250 lbs., but lacks the raw athletic ability and speed to be a down-field threat, as evidenced by his 40 time of 5.04. Pudewell possesses a nice set of hands, but is lacking in the way of blocking ability. Scout.com has him ranked as the seventh-best tight end available, and he will likely be a second-day selection. The Jaguars were one of the teams in attendance at his pro-day.
We know how coach Del Rio likes his offensive players big, and Rodney Hannah stands 6'8" tall, and 245 lbs. Hannah is a basketball player type, which many GM's around the league are looking for after the success of Antonio Gates and Tony Gonzalez. Hannah runs a 4.88, 40-yard dash, and is said to have pretty good hands. He will most likely be an undrafted free agent, and a project for some team (practice squad written all over him). Hannah is scheduled to visit with the Jaguars on Tuesday according to the University of Houston.
