Might be a good bet for one of the Dolphins 7th round picks.

A TE convert? Who knows? Anybody see him play last year?

I think I saw a couple Beaver games but I just don't remember him.

I did a little more looking. Apparently he was a track star and played LB and TE in HS. He was DPOY as a LB his senior season. He also played some RB in HS.

It does appear that he is injury prone.

Scouting Report:
An undersized defensive end prospect who displays decent thickness through his lower half and loves to play to the whistle. Works hard in pursuit. However, isn't real rangy when asked to close from the backside and lacks a great initial burst in all areas of the game. Uses his hands decently to fight his way off blocks, but struggles to anchor on contact.

Doesn't exhibit much of a burst off the snap in the pass game. Will stand up from a two-point stance at times, but struggles to keep his pad level down and just doesn't offer the burst, lateral suddenness or power to be a real efficient pass rushing threat in the NFL.

Impression: A hard-working player but lacks the size/power to hold up with his hand on the ground and isn't the kind of explosion athlete needed to be considered as a nickel rusher or 3-4 OLB prospect.

The guy Miami are looking at as a possible TE convert is Ryan Winterswyk of Boise State.

I think Marc Schiechl probably has a better shot in the NFL. He is the one I really hope they spend a late round pick on. He has the brains and the brawn.
