    This guy strikes me as a Patriots type: versatile-played fullback, tight end and guard at Oklahoma. He's big at 6' 5" 260 and according to PFW has "outstanding football intelligence." On top of that, they call him "very feisty" and a finisher. Not a great receiving threat.

    Would be a great third day value.

    One thing that stands out to me about this guy is that Gresham didn't even play last year and his numbers went down. I know he got hurt, but he did play 9 games and still wasn't doing much better then he was before.

    Big injury Flags with this guy. He's recovering from stress fractures in his neck, a major shoulder injury and he pulled his hamstring as well, which limited him at the combine.

    Not only did he play FB, TE, and G, but he also spent time as a center.

    Personally, I think he's make a great personal protector on the punt unit if he can stay healthy.
