Darren Waller Chances At Tight End

Recommended Posts

Something I'd never considered while watching him play during his GT years is a possible conversion to TE.

Here's a decent article breaking down his strengths/weaknesses that also mentions him as a TE prospect: http://www.fromtherumbleseat.com/georgia-tech-football/2015/4/22/8450679/georgia-tech-football-nfl-draft-scouting-report-wr-darren-waller

He was never great at getting separation from DBs in college. But despite this, he frequently made the catch anyway by simply using his height/frame to create last second space to pull the ball in. That's a skill that bodes well for tight ends. At nearly 6'7 he certainly has the height for the job.

He's a little bit light for a TE, and he's not as good of a blocker as you'd expect a Georgia Tech wide receiver to be. But I think he could be a really good possession guy and red zone threat.

I would be okay with a 6th rounder for him.
