Alfie's Player Ranking 84 out of 100
Projected Round: 3
Today continues my countdown to the Top 100 draftable players of the 2011 NFL Draft. We move on to my 84th ranked player, Wisconsin tight end Lance Kendricks.
PROS: Athletic tight end who matches up well with linebackers because of his speed. Breaks tackles with the ball in his hand and can get open deep down the field. Good receiving threat. Came from a run-first program so has experience blocking on the line and on the second level.
CONS: Doesn’t run very good routes. Will need to add some weight at the next level. Despite playing on a run heavy team, backs often ran to the opposite side of the field he was. Can get over powered when asked to block or help with defensive lineman.
