Scouting Report
For all the physical talent Seferian-Jenkins possesses, the 2013 Mackey Award winner likely will have a difficult time finding his way into the first round of the draft. A solid second-round prospect, Seferian-Jenkins finished third on the team with 36 receptions for 450 yards and eight touchdowns in 2013. Though the TD total was a career high, the catch and yardage marks were the lowest in his three seasons at Washington. Seferian-Jenkins found himself blocking more than during his first two years in the Pacific Northwest, mostly because tailback Bishop Sankey set career highs with 1,870 yards and 327 carries in 2013. That lack of attention could be the reason why some scouts felt Seferian-Jenkins lost focus and looked uninspired at times last season. Still, he left Washington as the school's all-time tight end leader in receptions (146), yards (1,838) and TDs (21). Boasting the ideal size and build of the desired NFL tight end, Seferian-Jenkins could thrive on the next level as a consistent red-zone option and dependable security blanket. Despite solid speed, he's not considered to be the over-the-middle deep threat that has become popular in the NFL these days. He underwent surgery for a stress fracture in his left foot that prevented him from taking part in the combine, but is expected to be ready for training camp. Seferian-Jenkins showed some maturity while serving a one-day jail sentence and speaking to local youth following his 2013 DUI arrest. Taking that type of responsibility and accountability could be looked highly upon by most NFL teams. He has been compared to Jacksonville's Marcedes Lewis because of his unique size and strong hands.
