Toughness and a willingness to make grabs over the middle of the field. He has a great set of hands. A lunch pail type tight end that also overs plus athletic ability. Great work ethic and leadership qualities. Played in Jim Harbaugh's pro-style offense. He should be able to contribute right away in the red zone.
Not very fast and slow off the snap. Needs a ton of work as a in-line blocker. Needs to bulk up some with an NFL lifting program. Tore his ACL in the Orange Bowl against Florida State and might not be ready for Week 1.
