Success - request sent close

Gifted athlete who will make circus catches and drop easy ones. Not interested in blocking.

Jace Amaro, Texas Tech 6-5.3 265 4.74

Had FBS TE-record 1,352 yards on 106 catches in 2013. Tough but lacks great speed and strength.

Austin Seferian-Jenkins, Wash. 6-5.4 262 4.75

Excellent movement and receiving skills for a big man but needs to get stronger and tougher.

C.J. Fiedorowicz, Iowa 6-5.4 265 4.76

Underutilized as a receiver but has the size and toughness to effectively work the middle.

Troy Niklas, Notre Dame 6-6.4 270 4.75

Converted OL-DE-OLB is still raw as TE but has huge upside with size, athleticism. Plus blocker.

Colt Lyerla, Oregon 6-3.7 242 4.61

Major character and consistency concerns but has flashed elite physical traits and run skills.

Marcel Jensen, Fresno St. 6-5.6 259 4.85

Looks the part with prototypical size and room to grow but lacks speed and receiving skills.

A.C. Leonard, Tenn. St. 6-2.3 252 4.50

Florida transfer has character concerns, lacks size, but speed, elusiveness equal big-play threat.

Jake Murphy, Utah 6-4 249 4.79

Son of MLB great Dale Murphy. Will be 25 in Sept. Most effective working underneath middle.

Crockett Gilmore, Colo. St. 6-5.7 260 4.89

Won't stretch the field and doesn't do much after the catch but has ideal size with room to grow.

Note: Number following the period under "Ht." refers to eighths of an inch.
