Default Austin Jenkins TE

fter reading about our new HC and his liking for TE. (Forget where I read this)

Would a 2nd or 3rd (if lucky) rd draft pick for this big bruiser of a TE be worth it?

270 lbs with a good catch radius and the strength to power out of tackles. An excellent red zone target (area we have struggled with). Only down side I have been reading is his burst speed and blocking for his size.
One report says he has same skill sets as Mercedes Lewis at the Jags.

I know we have lots of other more urgent holes to fill but thoufht I would put it out there for a discussion (getting bored of everything been QB related sorry).

I wonder why this thread was buried and not talked about. I'm interested to hear what people that know more than me have to say.

The QB talk has gotten a little old, I agree. I doubt at this point either side is going to be swayed by the other.

Austin Seferian-Jenkins, 6-6/266 TE Washington

Quote:
Skill-Set Summary: Tight ends have taken the NFL by storm in recent years and Seferian-Jenkins looks like the best tight end prospect to come along since the 2010 NFL Draft that featured a banner crop of tight ends. Seferian-Jenkins is a physical specimen who looks like he could be a high-impact tight end in the mold of the Patriots' Rob Gronkowski or the Saints' Jimmy Graham.

Seferian-Jenkins could become the complete package as a tight end. He is a fantastic receiver with the potential to be a top blocker. In the ground game, Seferian-Jenkins is generally effective on his blocks. He doesn't sustain his blocks as long as one would like and could use more force and attitude. That being said, Seferian-Jenkins flashes some impressive blocking in pass protection on edge-rushers.He could stand to improve more as a blocker for the NFL, but definitely has the skill set to be a good one.

As a receiver, Seferian-Jenkins is a matchup nightmare. He is too quick for linebackers to cover in man coverage and too big for defensive backs. The junior has a burst off the line and excellent straight-line speed to burn defenses down the middle seam. Seferian-Jenkins uses his size and strength to box out defenders for the ball. He has no problem going up over defensive backs to make contested catches. Seferian-Jenkins has phenomenal agility and body control for a thick tight end, and his basketball background is easily visible there.

To go along with his size and speed, Seferian-Jenkins has excellent hands and runs good routes. He is a rare tight end with his run-after-the-catch ability. Seferian-Jenkins uses his burst to run away from defenders and his size to bounce off of tacklers. He is very hard for one defensive back to bring down. Once Seferian-Jenkins has the ball, he does a nice job of picking up extra yards with a nose for the red zone.

Seferian-Jenkins looks like he could be a three-down tight end NFL and a devastating weapon as a pass receiver. He should be a phenomenal red-zone target. His rare combination of size, speed and athletic ability make him an elite tight end prospect for the next level.

2014 NFL Draft Expectations: It wouldn't be surprising if the biggest question mark for Seferian-Jenkins when he enters the NFL is off-the-field concerns. Some teams could be frightened away because of his DUI arrest and that could cause him to slide in the 2014 NFL Draft. For Seferian-Jenkins to be a high draft pick, it is vital that he stays out of trouble and develops the reputation that his problems are behind him.

Seferian-Jenkins enters the 2013 season looking like a first-round talent for the 2014 season. He just has to stay healthy, productive and out of trouble off the field. If Seferian-Jenkins is able to do that, the junior could easily be a Thursday night selection and one of the top tight ends to enter the NFL in recent years.
Question is is he Aaron Hernandez or has he changed?

Worth reading/watching: http://seattletimes.com/html/localne...kins06xml.html

Usually the people who "get it" talk more about who they might have killed/harmed and less about me, my body, my career, my life. But have to give him props for standing up and talking at all.

Really like him as a propect and would love to see a trade down where he's our second selection. More to learn about him in upcoming months.

A good choice for the Texans 2nd RD pick IF he gets by the New England Patriots in RD 1.

I think he and Griffin (as well as Graham, if he stays) would be an impressive group of Tight Ends and would fit what O'Brien likes to do with his offense. I would say that comparing any player to Aaron Hernandez when his character concerns are alcohol-related seems to be an exaggeration.
