Ourlads' Profile:

2015 Guide: What Ourlads' NFL Scouting Services said about WES SAXTON: South Alabama, 6033 248 4.65. Two-year starter. A new age NFL H-back/tight end from Hueytown, AL who plays in the slot. Has the speed to threaten down the middle versus Cover 2. Athletic and flexible. Can bend and come off the ball quickly. Has the frame to gain more good weight to help his blocking strength and durability. He has good contact balance and run after catch ability. Productive as a junior with 50 catches before the change in offensive philosophy. A competitive hand catcher who runs basic patterns. A smooth athlete who needs work as an inline blocker. Runs like a wide receiver playing tight end. Has steady and reliable hands. A mismatch with linebackers in man to man coverage. He also causes strong safeties problems on short and intermediate routes. A junior college transfer who is inexperienced in overall tight end play. Saxton is a developing prospect who upgrades the speed at a ball club’s tight end position. Not involved as an inline blocker. Willingness is questionable. Struggled with injuries and a change in South Alabama’s offense led to his decrease in production. Needs more attention to detail making the move from a spread offensive scheme to an NFL H-back.2014 stats: 20-155, 7.8 ypr. OSR:4/13. Sixth/seventh round. (A-32, H-9 5/8, BP-DNP, VJ-36).
