Marcel Jensen, Tight End, Fresno State
6'6", 270 pounds
Strengths: Don't let the counting statistics fool you, because Jensen has a surprising ability to stretch the field and has soft hands that made him a capable red zone target over the last two seasons. His size and strength make him a proficient blocker. Jensen also has well above average leaping ability that will be an asset on special teams; Bulldogs fans will recall his season-saving blocked kick against San Diego State, one of four blocked kicks in his time at Fresno State.
Weaknesses: Jensen spent the majority of the time surprising secondaries up the seams or catching short passes in Fresno State's offense, so he needs more work as a route runner. While he has no real injury history, Jensen missed the Senior Bowl with a groin injury, and that may be a red flag to risk-averse teams.
The Bottom Line: Fresno State abandoned its running game on occasion in 2013 but, when it was clicking, Jensen was a big reason why. He is one of the most physically imposing tight ends in this year's draft, and that alone will draw a great deal of attention when the top players are off the board after the first few rounds.
Projected round: 5
