Former Clemson transfer who promptly moved into
the starting lineup in 2001. Caught
only a single pass last season for eight yards, after 9/90 the previous year.
Nice-sized tight end with room to grow
physically. Quick off the snap into
his blocks, plays low with leverage and gives effort at the point of attack.
Runs well laterally, stays in tune with the quarterback, and displays
adequate hands. Extends and plucks
the ball out of the air away from his frame.
Lacks strength at the point of attack, does not
turn opponents off the line and doesn't get involved in the passing game.
Analysis: Must grow into his body and increase the effectiveness of his blocking if he's to have any possibilities at the next level.
