Kevin Koger, Tight End, Michigan 2012 NFL Draft Player Profile

This is our Kevin Koger Scouting report. For all of our other scouting reports check out our scouting report page

Measurables:

6’4″ 253 pounds, 1 3/8″ hands

**Hamstring injury**

21 bench press reps, 33 1/2″ vertical jump, 9’2″ broad jump, 4.53 second 20 yd shuttle

Pros: Has N.F.L. athletic ability…big hands…versatile…can catch the ball on contact…could be a guy that develops into a control the middle of the field type…knows how to “post up”…a decent route runner…can develop into a good blocker because he is functionally strong, but needs to be coached on technique

cons:

Does not have elite acceleration or straight line speed…average production….comes from a goofy offense with Denard Robinson, so just raw

Pre-season report (Nick Hlebichuck)

Koger will need a monster season in order to be drafted next year.  While he has great size for a Tight End (6’4″ 255 Pounds) he simply has not seen enough action due to playing his first 3 years in a spread offense.  He will likely get picked in the 7th round if he does get drafted.
