Combine Workouts: The Tight Ends

All of the top tight ends in April's draft took part in the workout at the RCA Dome. All who were healthy that is. Without a doubt a new order was established at the top of the position.

Michael Allan/Whitworth:  Did not practice as fast as he timed (4.72/4.67).  Though he caught the ball well Allan as not quick off the line and ran poor routes.

Kevin Boss/Western Oregon:  Boss looked good in practice running solid routes, adjusting to the ball and displaying good hands.  He also practiced faster than he timed in the forty.

Scott Chandler/IowaShowing natural hands, Chandler caught everything that was thrown in his direction.  That said his lack of speed was evident and Chandler ran poor routes.

Daniel Coats/BYUCoats is as slow as his forty times would suggest (5.07/5.02) yet he did a good job catching the ball and worked hard throughout the session.

Jonny Harline/BYU:  Harline displayed good hands and the ability to snatch the pass from the air.  The problem was his routes were poor and he also practiced much slower than he ran in the forty.

Zach Miller/ArizonaToday was the worst scenario Miller could've imagined.  After two terribly slow 40's his workout was not much better.  Miller dropped a lot of catchable throws, ran bad routes and looked lost at times.

Martrez Milner/GeorgiaAs was the case at the Senior Bowl Milner showed a lot of flashes all day.  Looking very natural and athletic, he caught the deep ball well and generally displayed solid hands.

Greg Olson/Miami-Fl:  Far and away the best performer of the day.  After two scorching 40's, Olson looked great during the session.  Displaying both soft and strong hands, Olson was very natural in all his actions and also ran good routes.  His blocking strength must improve though.

Ben Patrick/Delaware: Patrick caught the ball very well but practiced slow and was chided several times for poor blocking techniques.

Anthony Pudewell/NevadaNot much could save Pudewell's day after his poor times in the forty.  His pass catching workout was inconsistent.

Gijon Robinson/Missouri Western:  Robinson displayed soft, natural hands, catching most everything thrown in his direction.  He did not show the speed to run to the deep ball.

Derek Schouman/Boise StateSchouman was very inconsistent catching the ball after good times in the forty.
