A pure mismatch as a passing target. Huge catch radius, outstanding speed, athleticism, and excellent pass catching ability will make him a tight end that is used almost exclusively in the pass game, and will probably be moved all over the line. Virtually non existent as a blocking tight end, a trend that is growing in the NFL.
