Comparison

Colby Parkinson Seattle Seahawks

Long-limbed, big framed tight end prospect that has plenty of physical maturation left. Offers a big catch radius and can make plays well outside his frame. Proficient in jump ball and rebound scenarios. Operates largely out of a wide receiver position in high school but flashes some physicality. Junior season was his first year playing football. Not the most fluid in space and needs improved instincts after the catch. Primarily a big, possession target now but has the look of an early developmental prospect that will improve dramatically given his limited exposure to football, frame and natural ball skills. We view him as an eventual Power Five starter with significant upside who is a potential NFL Draft pick.
