Hill is a different wide receiver than McLaurin. The former is a 6-foot-0, 190-pound wideout who relies on his speed and quickness more than anything else. While he’s played both on the outside and in the slot, he’s best on the inside.
Davis-Gaither is undersized at 6-0 1/2 and 219 pounds, leading some to question whether his best fit at the next level will be at outside linebacker or safety. Based on this week, he’s capable of seeing action at either position. Down in the box he is aggressive with the range to go sideline-to-sideline. In coverage he’s shown the speed and athleticism to run stride for stride down the field with wideouts. Modern offenses are all about creating matchup problems and that’s a lot more difficult to do with a guy like Davis-Gaither on the field.
Trautman could finish the pre-draft process ranked as the most complete tight end in the class, based on his combination of playmaking skills and blocking ability as an edge player. The 6-foot-5, 251-pounder is a well-rounded player with the combination of skills (hands, ball skills, athleticism, strength and blocking ability) to be a traditional tight end, which is a rare commodity in 2020. He has the capacity to move defenders off the ball on the edges, while also displaying enough athleticism and quickness to get to the second level.
Chase Claypool, WR, Notre Dame. I really enjoyed watching Claypool on tape and couldn’t wait to see him perform in person on the Senior Bowl stage. I was not disappointed, and neither were the NFL evaluators in attendance. Not only does he look the part of a big, imposing receiver, he showed off how fluid and natural he is with his movement. He snatched the ball away from his frame with strong hands and created separation using his size and athleticism.
Chinn really impressed me with how fluid and fast he is at his size. He was matching up with a number of receivers in 1-on-1 drills and winning a good percentage of the time. He was excellent versus tight ends as well. He definitely helped himself this week as a guy who can be a versatile back-up safety/special teamer as a rookie with the potential for more.

On what it has been like for him to be going through this intense process of trying to prove that he is ready to move on to the highest level
It’s humbling. It’s definitely a testament of what I’ve worked hard to do. That’s kinda my mindset. But it’s definitely humbling and I understand how big of an opportunity it is – not to squander it – not to waste it.
