Nick Jacobs mock 2.0
23. Chiefs: TE- Austin Seferian-Jenkins, Washington
You probably just got disappointed with me for the second time. Marqise Lee is still on the board and I don't take him. Not many tight ends can run a wheel route like Seferian-Jenkins at his size and with his speed. The three tight end sets the Chiefs ran in training camp were fun to watch because they created so many options and mismatches in the red zone. I want you to think back to Jamaal Charles' receiving touchdowns in the Giants and Cowboy games. You have three to four different options a team must honor going on at the same time. That was how effective these play designs were.
Seferian-Jenkins would give Alex Smith a receiver with a reliable catch radius. He also gives him a consistent route runner. When I looked at his tape again, I saw the No. 1 thing in an Andy Reid system: he understood the holes in a defense and sat down in them.
Seferian-Jenkins had a DUI in 2013 but he responded very well to those questions at the Combine by taking ownership of his actions. He didn't blame anyone else. His interview reminded me a lot of Kyle Long the previous year.
