Scouting Report: Christopher Herndon
School: Miami Position: Tight End Class: Senior Height: 6-4 Weight: 252 lbs Projected Draft Round: 3-5
A powerful, blocking tight end that injured his knee during the season, but had already put up lots of quality tape throughout his career. Coachable and hard working, Herndon was used primarily as a blocking tight end, and was extremely proficient working on the line and in space making room for ball carriers and after pass plays to other receivers. However, when used in the passing game showed very promising skills with soft hands and surprising agility in the open field. With his injury and the fact that he is not necessarily viewed as a pass catching tight end, could be a late round gem for a team willing to be patient for a year or two for him to fully heal and develop into an all around tight end.
