NFL Combine TEs

I saw some of TEs drills yesterday and here is what I saw. One, Luke Stocker (Tenn) plays better than he practices. He missed some catches but knows how to run routes and will take a hit (as seen via the Senior Bowl game and practice with pads). Two, no TE was significantly better than the others. However, there were some good TEs. The kid from Iowa (allen ?) stood out as well as the kid from Florida Atlantic (name ?), he had the fastest 40 (4.5) and could get in a out of his break  but will need a year or two to work on his skills...same for the Iowa kid but he is slower. The other players to do well are Dj Williams (arkansas) and the kid from Portland who play some basketball. DJ Williams is going to be well rounded and good but not great (his 40, broad jump, vert and other measures were good but not the best ..but if average overall, he might have the best measures). The kid from Portland has great hands but I think he is too tall....yes too tall. I do not think he can play on the line and bind that deep in the knees...too fat of an ass, he bends his knees when catching which is good but I think someone like a Chris Long will get underneath him and drive him all day back into the QB...so, no to him. The kid from UNC might be OK as a special teamer and a later round pick. Well that is it. The 2 names (Stocker and Wiliams) that should have stood out did but not that greatly. Of the 2, I'll take Stocker based on film, he is one of others players who just know how to play (F the measureable). If the Florida Atlantic kid or Iowa kid can be had at the 4th or later rounds, it would be OK to take a chance...yes, we can't afford to take chance but nothing is for certain.

 

Sorry on the no names but I didn't take notes, I just watched.
