NFL.com draft profile

Positive: Adam Shaheen has an enormous frame for a tight end. Powerfully built, well-proportioned frame. Accomplished high school hooper who brings the same footwork to the field. Has good sink into breaks and can make sharp cuts coming out. Has foot quickness for clever stutter-and-go double moves to uncover against linebackers. Above average speed and acceleration for his size. Moved all over the field. Was isolated for fade routes near endzone. Plus hand-eye coordination and shows ability to alter body positioning to improve catch-odds while ball-tracking.Trusted in pass protection. Sees twists and blitzes and responds to them. Needs work as run blocker but has desired frame of a Y-tight end.

Negative: Tape on Adam Shaheen can be deceiving because you are watching him completely dominate and overwhelm lesser competition in Division 2 football. Hi upper body is stiff and mechanical in his routes. Hasn’t learned how to utilize hands to free himself against press. Gets jammed up in his release and can be knocked off the timing of his patterns. Will need to learn to adjust in space in order to maneuver past traffic. In need of his fair share of technique work as a run blocker. Ducks head into initial contact. Finds himself lunging and chasing when asked to climb to second level.

Interesting...

That's one word for it.

Me, too. I'm making pizza for movie night, and my kids don't want to eat it off the walls.

Well, they probably do, but that's another story.

I have no idea about this kid whatsoever and was taking a nap when they took him. I'm guessing people would've preferred a defensive back or something, but I'm going to watch some highlights and see what's up.

I like it. Super early for Pace to go D-II, but I guess he's just full of surprises this weekend.

He is talented, I watched some you b tube things a while back. He destroyed a bunch of 5'11" dudes.

He does move well and a natural catcher

I love this pick. He needs some play experience for sure but by the time our new quarterback is ready to go they should be bread and butter.
