NFL Draft Report

 
By Joe Buscaglia
 


TE Kevin Koger, Michigan


Kevin Koger, #86

Michigan

6'3", 262 lbs., 22 years old

Toledo, OH

2011: 23 receptions, 244 yards, 4 TD

2010: 14 receptions, 199 yards, 2 TD

2009: 16 receptions, 220 yards, 2 TD

2008: 6 receptions, 93 yards, TD

 

PROS

- Very good build for the position. A strong frame that doesn't allow him to get completely overpowered by linebackers.

- Nice breakdown at the top of his routes. Turns in to a low-post man over the middle giving the QB a target.

- Once he has the ball, he does very well at fighting through contact to pick up an extra yard or two whichever way momentum is taking him.

- A solid, but not spectacular run blocker. Displays a nice strong initial push that he occasionally loses with his assignment disengaging.

 

CONS

- So-so speed without any real burst off the line of scrimmage.

- Will struggle in separation due to the lack of athleticism.

- Fights the ball rather than catching it clean at times.

- Never really made his mark at Michigan. Most receptions he had in one game was four.

 

Special Notes:

- Turns 23 in December

- Team captain his senior season.

 

Projection: Late rounds to Undrafted

- While Koger will never be a star, he looks like the type to round out your roster as a TE3.
