Jeff Dugan Scouting Report

At first glance, Jeff Dugan being from Maryland might have fans thinking Mike Tice was playing favorites with his alumni. But TFY Draft Preview gives Dugan much more credit than that.

Name: Jeff Dugan School: Maryland Year: 5Sr
Ht: 6-4.5 Wt: 263 40: 4.98 Pos: TE

Bio: One of the most consistent tight ends in the ACC since 2000. Second-team all-conference selection as a senior with receiving numbers of 14/175/0 after 9/91/1 the prior season. Set career highs of 25/319/1 during his freshman campaign.

Pos: Reliable prospect with a complete game. Fluid releasing into pass routes, adjusts to the errant throw and makes the tough catch in traffic. Displays both focus and concentration, on the same page as his quarterback and a solid receiver. Bends his knees as a blocker, displays vision and strong at the point of attack. Patient, seals blocks or destroys linebackers on the second level. Fundamentally sound in all aspects.

Neg: Overall game lacks explosion and speed. Not involved in the passing game nor does he stand out in any single aspect.

Analysis: Though not be the flashiest, Dugan quietly gets the job done as both a pass catcher and blocker. A solid middle-round prospect that could flourish as a team's number one tight end in certain systems.
