On the Game Day Roster
I need to do more work on Sample. I guess you could say the film I've seen is only a small Sample size. (I'm so sorry. That was a terrible pun.)
Wesco first caught my attention due to his versatility. He can play inline, fullback, move, and so on -- he is a solid blocker and has more size (270 or so) than a lot of the other TEs in this draft. He's not the fastest or most agile, but he's a reliable dump off option who can often surprise a defender by making a move to pick up a couple extra yards. He's not a star player; he may not even become a starter in most systems, but for the Patriots I think he compares quite favorably with Develin or Allen:
A quick intro if you're unfamiliar. I was glad to see others view him in a similar fashion:

Pretty nice change of direction in this rep for a big guy:
I'm so glad that you posted these about Wesco. Dude has an excellent frame for a TE. When I was looking for blocking reps in his games, I tended to see poor/inconsistent effort and just walked away unimpressed. The WVU offense also isn't going to give you a lot of pro style rushes to look at.
Wesco could definitely be a target.
