I guess a lot will depend on Combine/School work out numbers whether he gets drafted or not.
Think along the lines of Dressen, more of a blocker who can catch and develop into a receiving threat. Nebraska does not throw a lot.
Bell, Kenny 12-12 44 789 17.9 8 74 65.8
Enunwa, Quincy 12-12 35 408 11.7 1 35 34.0
Turner, Jamal 12-2 24 332 13.8 2 36 27.7
Top three receivers which would look more like Air force than USC. Martinez makes VY look like Andre Ware.
I just feel having that TE who can be almost like another lineman in our offense would be a key addition.
