With the 251st pick in the 2017 NFL Draft, the Cincinnati Bengals have selected Buffalo tight end Mason Schreck in Round 7. Only two picks remain after this before the 2017 draft comes to a close.
The Medina, Ohio native figures to compete in camp as an extra body at the tight end position. Schreck, who stands 6-foot-4 and weighs 253 pounds, is a slight but solid player who could potentially develop into a rotational pass-catcher behind Tyler Eifert, C.J. Uzomah and Tyler Kroft.
Another player the #Lions met with is Mason Schreck of Buffalo. A bit undersized, but posted good speed and explosion numbers #RAS pic.twitter.com/QBioxWnKmi— Kent Lee Platte (@MathBomb) March 17, 2017
Schreck caught 107 passes throughout his four-year career in Buffalo, totaling over 1,113 yards and six touchdowns. Last season, he totaled 651 yards and four touchdowns on 59 receptions, good for 11 yards per reception.
Here’s some information from his Draft Analyst draft profile:
Nice-sized tight end with a developing game. Displays outstanding vision, shows the ability to slide out in pass protection and squares into defenders. Keeps his feet moving, bends his knees and blocks with leverage. Strong at the point and controls defenders. Consistently finds the soft spot in the defense to make himself an available target. Adjusts to the errant throw and extends to make receptions away from his frame. Keeps the play in bounds after the catch and works to pick up positive yardage.
