With the 11th pick of the 6th round, the San Francisco 49ers select Bear Pascoe, the aptly named tight end out of Fresno State. This was a guy I was thinking the 49ers might draft, but I wonder if it's a round too early for what will essentially be a blocking tight end in the mold of Billy Bajema.
Here's a scouting report from Draft Countdown:
Strengths: Great height with a large frame and adequate bulk...Super tough...Has reliable hands...Excellent blocker both on the move and in-line...Runs with power after the catch...Smart...Good awareness...A hard worker.
Weaknesses: Stiff and is not very athletic...Timed speed is well below average...Not very strong...Isn't a vertical threat and won't stretch the field...Doesn't get much separation...Not very elusive...Poor leaper...Limited upside.
