@Mr.Bamboozaul totally disagree. they'll go shopping for defense next year. they're looking for the next Von Miller. and the next Darrel Revis and the next Richard Sherman. They don't need to go QB shopping.
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.
