2020 NFL Combine: Tight End Prospects, Invites, What To Watch For

By

4. Brycen Hopkins, Purdue 6-4, 245 (2)

Why He’s Here On The List: Opinions on him will be all over the place. An elite college receiver, he caught 61 passes for 831 yards and seven scores last season for the Boilermakers, and he was able to take over at times, but is he an elite receiver? Can he be consistent enough? Every drop in Indy will be magnified.

What The NFL Types Want To See: The athleticism has to make up for the other concerns. He knows how to find holes in a defense and he’s great at using his speed and skills to get separation. However, does he look like a natural pass catcher compared to the other top prospects?

Bottom Line: He might be the No. 1 tight end on the board if he can blow the doors off the rest of the field with his smoothness and athleticism. No one will draft him as a blocker, but he’ll be a good starter with a little bit of tweaking.
