Name: Sean Berton School: North Carolina St Year: 5Sr
Ht: 6-4.5 Wt: 279 40: 5.02 Pos: TE
Bio: Former transfer from West Virginia and an All-Conference selection as a senior after totaling 20 receptions for 175 yards and 1 score. Sat out the 2001 season after starting every game for the Mountaineers in 2000 posting 15-126-2.
Pos: Big, strong tight end best as a blocker. Quick releasing off the snap of the ball, breaks down well and plays with leverage. Stays square, keeps defenders in front of him and turns opponents out blocking for the run. Extends his hands and catches the ball away from his frame as a receiver. Displays focus and concentration.
Neg: Not fast, lacks balance and only effective a few yards off the line of scrimmage as a pass catcher. Does not display the top footwork in pass protection.
Analysis: One-dimensional and not much of a receiving threat but his blocking abilities could garner late round attention.
