Reminds Us Of

Mark Andrews Baltimore Ravens

Big frame with plenty of room to still get bigger although he has filled in more as his high school career has gone along. Makes plays in all phases of the game, including as an end on defense and on special teams. Plays hard and with intensity. Also a good basketball player and his athleticism shows there. Has a bigger catch radius and is comfortable catching the ball away from his body. Willing blocker who has gotten stronger but has always had the tenacity and pad level to excel there. High school offense was fairly balanced, and did not ask him to do as much running of the route tree as far as we can tell. Used more as a intermediate receiver but there are flashes of him stretching the field. Has played unattached a little bit but projects more as a traditional, on the ball tight end and a good one.
