Name:  RJ Luke School: Western Illinois   Year: 4Sr

Ht: 6-2.5 Wt: 255 40: 4.82 Pos: TE

Bio: Former Penn State fullback who moved to tight end as a red-shirt junior.  Caught 40 passes for 725 yards and 6 scores last season, after 12/207/1 when he backed-up for the Nittany Lions.

Pos: Tough football player with deficient size/speed numbers.  Runs good routes, looks the ball in and consistently snatches the pass out of the air.  Breaks down well playing with forward lean and works hard as a blocker, taking defenders out on the move.

Neg: Not nifty or nimble, does not adjust well to the errant throw, nor does he dominate at the point of attack with his blocking assignments.

Analysis: Height disadvantage may negate any possibilities for him to be a true tight end and he's not strong enough to be a lead fullback.
