Any Chargers fans that also follow the San Diego State Aztecs will be familiar with the 6'6, 238 lb TE from the University of Louisiana-Lafayette. In the Aztecs most recent bowl game, the Sub Belt Conference star caused all kinds of matchup problems and had 5 catches for 121 yards and a TD reception. It's a bad memory, but one that might be tempered as he has a chance to help the Chargers in the near future.

His frame is long and lean, a little different from your typical TE. The Chargers may even consider trying to beef him up to 250 lbs. That frame though comes with long arms and big hands. And he can certainly use those. He gets the highest grades for his ball skills and has what could be called a "huge catching radius". He shows good skills to catch the ball and run. That leads to him being a big play pass catching TE. The Chargers will definitely try to utilize this to get big chunks of yards from their backup with runs after the catch.

His downside is his blocking. Don't expect him to come in on run downs. He shows good effort but his technique and abilities are not strong. Scouts don't even see a lot of upside here. Perhaps he can at least have some success when blocking as an H-back in the backfield with Rivers. That's a formation the Chargers like to use for their backup TEs.

This is definitely an exciting pick for a 4th round selection. A guy that can make plays and will probably be a fan favorite.
