School: Kansas State
Ht: 6-6 Wt: 271 40: 5.28 Year: 5Sr
Bio: Former special teams player who's started
the past two seasons, winning All-Conference
honors after each campaign. Posted career
numbers of 22/286/2 as a senior after 19/349/2
the prior year.
Positives: Nice-sized pass-catching
tight end who has improved his blocking.
Quickly releases into pass routes, adjusts
to the errant throw, and flashes skill making
plays in the secondary. Comes back to the
ball, shields opponents away with his large
frame, then extends and looks the pass in.
Plays with leverage, stays square and walls
opponents from the action with good body
positioning. Stays with assignments and works
Negatives: Must improve the details of his
game and learn to use his size as an asset on
every down. Marginal playing strength and not
dominant at the point.
Analysis: A king-sized
tight end who plays much faster than his forty
time, Casey has potential as the number-two
man on a depth chart used during short yardage
situations. Could also project to offensive
tackle, as he has the size and mentality to play
