Prospect Profile: Kevin Everett

Kevin Everett
School: Miami-Fl
Ht: 6-4.5 Wt: 241 40: 4.75 Year: 4Sr

Bio: Moved into a starting role as a senior and caught 23 passes for 310 yards. Backed up Kellen Winslow, Jr. the prior year and posted 9/90/9.

Positives: Big, athletic tight end with great upside for the next level. Fluid releasing into pass routes, immediately gets to top speed and adjusts to make the difficult catch. Looks the ball into his hands and strong running after the reception, breaking tackles to pick up positive yardage. Displays good focus and pulls the pass out of a crowd. Solid route runner and uses good body positioning to shield away opponents. Leverage blocker who seals holes for the running game or removes linebackers on the second level.

Negatives: Does not display soft, natural hands. Only average blocking strength and cannot finish. Had shoulder surgery at the end of the season and still recuperating as of early March.

Analysis: A well-sized tight end who plays much faster than his forty time, Everett displays flashes of dominance as a pass catcher with the ability to make the tough reception during the game's important moments. Suffered with minor injuries as a starter last season and will need a lot of time to become a complete player, but has the ability to develop into a team's number one tight end.
