Knee-Jerk Reaction: Brad Cottam

I finally got one of my Draft Apples! Chiefs fans might be scratching their heads now on this one, but down the road they will be loving big Brad Cottam. 6-foot-8, almost 270 pounds and he was among the top five tight ends in the 40 (4.63), bench press (24 reps) and vertical (33 inches). He won’t be Tony Gonzalez or even Jason Dunn, but at his size and speed he could be a hybrid of the two. He’s a great blocker which will allow Chan Gailey to utilize him right away in two-TE sets. Eventually, he will be Tony G’s replacement. Fantastic pick. Mel Kiper said he might have been a first rounder if he had been targeted more in college. Check the highlights of Dustin Colquitt‘s and Turk McBride‘s former teammate…
