Sperry Kory Colorado State TE 5.6
Last Name First Name College Position Final Grade
6'5" 238 4.77
Height Weight 40 Time
ATHLETIC ABILITY SECTION GRADE: 6.5
Q.A.B 6.5

Quick Feet 6.5

C.O.D 6.5

Flexibility 6.5

Coordination 6.5

Sperry is a very good athlete who shows very good quickness and agility. His quick feet and ability to change directions allows him to gain separation as well as be effective in space blocking, receiving, or making people miss. He shows very good body control in traffic and space to adjust to the ball and make tough catches.
COMPETITIVENESS SECTION GRADE: 5.0
Toughness 5.0

Clutch Play 5.0

Production 5.0

Consistency 4.5

Team Player 5.5

Pride/Quit 5.5

Sperry is not a physically dominant TE, he is much more of a finesse type player. His production is adequate but definitely not eye popping. Sperry's effort and production is very inconsistent; he does not give nearly as much effort in the blocking game as he does in the receiving game. With that being said, it begs to question him as a team player and his overall pride and desire.
MENTAL ALERTNESS SECTION GRADE: 5.5
Learn/Retain 5.5

Inst/Reaction 5.5

Concentration 5.5

Sperry has a fairly good understanding of the passing game, but does need to improve his reading and awareness of zone defenses. His instincts and reactions need help, especially in the blocking game. Sperry's concentration slides at times causing him to read the defense wrong or completely miss his blocking assignment.
STRENGTH/EXPLOSION SECTION GRADE: 5.0
Body Type 6.5

Durability 5.5

Explosion 4.5

Play Strength 4.5

Sperry does have good size for a TE but does need to improve on muscle mass and strength. His durability is a little bit of a question since he did have a torn ACL in 2007. Sperry is not an explosive or strong player and will definitely struggle blocking in the NFL against bigger stronger defenders.

STRONG POINTS WEAKNESSES
Sperry is a more athletic receiving type of TE. He displays good hands with the ability to adjust and make tough catches in space and in traffic. Sperry has good straight line speed that makes him a viable threat deep. Sperry likes strength and consistency in the blocking game. He struggles with technique and ability blocking; whether it is in line or out in space. Sperry does not keep his feet under him or his head up which causes him to completely miss blocks.
SUMMARY
Sperry lack of strength and blocking abilities is going to cause him to struggle in the NFL. As a TE with the Rams he rarely got down in a 3 point stance and that could cause some troubles for him adjusting to a more conventional offense in the NFL. Sperry's biggest strengths are his receiving abilities as he has very good hands and athleticism that helps him to make plays down field. Sperry is kind of caught in the middle; he lacks strength and bulk to be a real all around TE and he lacks the speed to move to WR, so Sperry is going to have to really work on his strength and bulk as well as his blocking techniques to get a chance to contribute offensively to an NFL team.
