The good: This huge tight end had a strong final season that earned him an invitation to the Senior Bowl and NFL Scouting Combine, where he left a favorable impression on scouts. He is a tall, long-limbed athlete who shows fine hands and body control to be an effective receiver in the short zones. He provides a huge target and has the catching skills of a wide receiver. Haynos has the agility, hand technique and recognition skills to contribute early. He shows both the physical and mental talent to play in the NFL.
The bad: His marginal speed and blocking technique will limit his early contributions. He lacks the speed to give an offense a dimension in the deep seam. He has improved as a blocker, but he needs some technique work to be accomplished in that role. He comes off the snap too high which negates his large frame, agility and reach. He also fails to retain his blocks the full play.
Outlook: He has the skills to be a quality starter. Haynos would be a good fit for the Baltimore Ravens, Chicago Bears or Buffalo Bills. This top-200 prospect could go lower because of the depth at tight end.
