Washington Huskies tight end Austin Seferian-Jenkins is generally regarded as the third-best tight end in the draft behind UNC’s athletic specimen Eric Ebron and Texas Tech’s Jace Amaro, who is widely mocked to the New England Patriots and impressed us all with 28 bench reps yesterday. While Seferian-Jenkins isn’t as touted as those three, he is a better blocker than them and gets mocked frequently to the Seattle Seahawks with the 32nd overall pick as a “local” replacement for likely cap casualty Zach Miller.
ASJ, however, wasn’t able to show his stuff at the Combine, as draft insider Tony Pauline reports that the well-rounded TE is suffering from a fracture in his foot. Hopefully he can get healed up as quickly as possible, but the injury isn’t going to affect his draft stock going forward.
Texas Longhorns wide receiver prospect Mike Davis is also suffering from a Combine injury, as the NFL Network’s Ian Rapoport reports that Davis won’t partake in “on-field” drills at the Combine after not being cleared to participate due to a “minor” right foot injury. Davis is extremely fast and has upside as as deep threat at the next level, but he’s an inconsistent player who isn’t fluid and has some character red flags. The Combine would have been a great chance for the small receiver to show off his speed, so hopefully he can be healthy enough to shine at Texas’s pro day. Since the foot injury is minor, I’m sure he’ll do just that.
