There’s all the talk of Dallas Goedert and Mike Gesicki with the New Orleans Saints clearly looking for a pass-catching Tight End. There’s also been talk about the Saints drafting Oklahoma QB Baker Mayfield, but what about his pass-catching Tight End in college, Mark Andrews?

Analysis:

(per NFL.com)

Andrews is a former wideout who plays with a receiver’s mentality in a tight end’s body. He is a pass-catcher with a deft feel for route adjustments and operating in space against zone coverage. Andrews is a big, reliable target who doesn’t need a spacious catch window to haul it in. Despite his size, he lacks the desire and fundamentals as a blocker which will hurt his standing with some teams. He should be able to find early catches and production as a solid pass-catching tight end in the league.
