Ourlads' Profile:

2017 Guide: What Ourlads' NFL Scouting Services said about ADAM SHAHEEN: Ashland, 6064 278 4.79. Junior entry and two-year starter from Galena, OH. Transfer from Pittsburgh-Johnstown University where he played basketball as a freshman. The big tight end played the 2013-14 season for the Mountain Cats, averaging 5.5 points and 3.1 rebounds in 26 games. As a prep, Shaheen averaged 19 points and collected 10 rebounds per game. He gained 62 pounds in three years. Two-time Academic Division II All-American. Lines up as an inline tight end, split end, and wing back. A man playing with boys at the Division II level. No hold up getting off the line of scrimmage. Has the strength, power, and quickness to defeat press at this level. To play on Sundays, Shaheen will need more core and anchor strength to block defenders bigger than he is. Needs to bend and roll his hips. Plays high as a blocker. Will lose his feet in space and on the second level at times. A screen off type blocker who needs to learn how to finish and sustain his blocks. Needs to improve as a route runner. Rounds his cuts and body turns, gathers to cut. Separates at this level because of size and speed. Works well between the hash marks and in the end zone. Good speed down the field. Generally catches the ball in his hands. Will cradle and basket catch if ball is under thrown. Can move and adjust to uncover this level. Can get open and find the void versus zone. Will need to work on man-to-man technique. Adjusts to the ball well in flight. Has strong hands to grab and put the ball away. Good run after catch ability. Runs over Division II defensive backs. Has good toughness and concentration. Asserts himself in traffic. Rarely used as a deep receiver. Ran crossers, slants, corner routes, and fades. Competes well and plays with confidence. Runs upright but has acceleration after catch in the open field. Ascending skills and production. 2016 stats: 57-867, 15.2 ypr, 16 TD. Fourth/ fifth round. (A-, H-9 5/8, VJ-, SS-).
