2018 Guide: What Ourlads' NFL Scouting Services said about TYLER CONKLIN: Central Michigan, 6030 254 4.79. Two-year starter from Chesterfield, MI. A basketball transfer from Northwood University in Michigan. Lines up mostly in the slot and plays detached at X and Z receiver. Not a classic inline tight end. He is taken out on goal-line and short yardage packages. Started as a junior and became a short yardage and red zone option. Missed the first five games of 2017 with Jones fracture, a foot injury. Helped himself in the Senior Bowl demonstrating that he is a move H-back receiver with good ball skills. Competes for the ball over the middle. Played better in 2016 before he was injured. Good hand strength to catch the ball in a crowd. Struggles to separate against NFL caliber linebackers. Will need to get stronger and play with more technique to earn an NFL roster spot. 2017 stats: 35-504, 14.4 ypr, 5 TD. OSR:4/16. Sixth/seventh round. (A-33, H-9 1/2, VJ-38, SS-4.23).
