DRAFT PROJECTION Round 3-4

NFL COMPARISON Devin Funchess

BOTTOM LINE Hodges still has work to do as a route-runner and his inconsistent hands could be a concern. He can line up inside or outside while his size and ability to work all three levels of the field should be appealing to teams looking for pass catching options. The competitive nature of the NFL could bring out more consistent toughness in him as a blocker. He has the tools to be a long-time starter and touchdown-maker in the league.

Now that's a great pick right there, big & athletic TE who has big potential imo.

I wanted him two rounds ago in the 4th, thrilled to get him in the 6th. Very nice! Cool

At his size, these numbers are outrageous:

Watching videos, his athleticism is evident. They were running reverse/TE sweep type plays for him. 4.57 40 5th fastest in loaded TE class. 39" vert and 11'2" broad jump led all TEs.

having two good pass-catchers at TE would be great for the WCO that Shurmur and Bradford will want to run.

Thielen, Diggs, Rudolph, Hodges and Cook in the backfield. Lots of playmaking talent.

The prospect of 3 TE sets with Rudolph, Morgan, Hodges, Cook, and Diggs/Theilen on the field in the Redzone sounds incredible.
