    Great choice, he’s only 21 and has lots of upside. Great production at Fresno State (never heard of that college, though). The tight end is a scary pick considering we’re trying to keep up with Chicago, Minnesota and Detroit in quality picks.

  • Josh McPeak

    Runs a great fade route and awesome sideline awareness. Looks like he also has great hands and cut moves that will be great for the comeback route over a defenders shoulder. Lots of upside with this pick.
