Prospect Profile: Billy Bajema

Billy Bajema
School: Oklahoma State
Ht: 6-5 Wt: 261 40: 4.82 Year: 4Sr

Bio: Three-year starter awarded All- Conference and All-Academic honors since his sophomore campaign. Posted 18/264/1 as a senior after 12/129/2 the prior year.

Positives: Athletic tight end with solid size/speed numbers. Adequate pass catcher who adjusts to the errant throw, makes the reception in stride, and occasionally make plays in the secondary. Takes a pounding and holds onto the ball. Looks the pass into his hands and displays good concentration. Leverage blocker who stays square and jolts opponents at the point of attack.

Negatives: Not quick releasing off the line and slowed by opponents jams. Lacks pure blocking strength and cannot finish.

Analysis: A solid-looking prospect at face value, Bajema has been marginally productive the past three seasons. Offers growth potential and runs well for his size, yet must quickly pull the pieces together if he's to be anything other than a career backup in the NFL.
