Riser 2: Adam Shaheen, TE, Ashland
The Division II phenom had a lot of teams curious to watch him. Standing at 6-foot-6, 270-pounds, the size isn’t an issue, and after watching film many teams could quickly put to rest any doubts about him in the receiving game. However, questions over strength and blocking remained. Shaheen took out half the worry pumping 33 Reps on the bench with those massive arms and leaves teams to only question his blocking.
Shaheen is a question mark for this draft as being a Division II player in a talented class is always going to hold you back but his ceiling may be higher than any other tight end in the draft. With a strong combine, Shaheen has only pushed the issue to forcing a team to pick him above well known commodities from the Division I stage.
Faller 2: Teez Tabor, CB, Florida
Teez was in debate to be the No. 1 CB in a class that was random in rankings. However, after failing at the “Underwear Olympics” with a 4.68 it’s hard to see him going first round with the whole slate or CB talent in the class. While he’ll have a chance to improve on his numbers at his pro day Tabor comes with his share of character concerns so a strong combine would force teams to overlook those, but the red flags and poor numbers combined may convince teams to pass for other talent.
