2009 NFL Draft Prospects: <br> Travis Beckum Profile

Strengths: Average height with the room to bulk up a little more ... Highly athletic with excellent body control ... Deep speed to stretch a defense ... Great ball skills; can adjust to poorly thrown passes ... Very solid Y.A.C. ... Tough when going over the middle ... Good route runner ... Vertical playmaker ... Provides some versatility at H-Back ... Very good upside.

Weaknesses: Needs to add some more strength to frame ... Not going to block ... Doesn't always read soft spots in zone ... Durability concerns after season-ending fractured fibula ... Will not fit every scheme ... Occasionally loses focus on jump balls ... Should have been a more productive red-zone target ... Needs to do a better job of getting off jam at LOS against linebackers.

Summary: Before the season, Beckum was in the first round of many mock drafts and the consensus No. 1 TE. I have no idea what happened other than one injury. I think he is very underrated at this point and checks in as my No. 2 tight end in the 2009 NFL Draft. He will be a better pro than college player.

Player Comparison: Owen Daniels. Daniels is one of the best vertical threats at tight end in the NFL, and I think Beckum has that type of potential.
