I’m a fan of recently converted Oklahoma Quarterback Blake Bell … another day three guy.
If you didn’t look closely, you’d have mistaken him for a tight end, which he coincidentally switched to during his senior season.
Raw talent at most, but an incredible athlete for his size and has excellent speed. But the Packers don’t need raw talent, they need refined talent.
Another prospect to look at is Pharoh Brown from Oregon.
Brown is expected to be a day three pick. According to Yahoo Sports, Brown is most compared to former Packers tight end Jermichael Finley.
I might have Jimmy Graham/Julius Thomas syndrome where any 6-6, 250-pound-plus tight end looks like a potential pro bowler to me.
All three of these tight end prospects, however, meet most of the physical criteria to compete with the Grahams and Thomases of the NFL.
