While the 2012 NFL Scouting Combine is just starting to heat up, there are already players making a good impact on their draft status.
One of the biggest risers so far has been Georgia Bulldogs tight end Orson Charles. While some had questioned his height and size, Evan Silva of NBC Sports is reporting that Charles measured out to 6’3” and 251 pounds.
Is Orson Charles a First-Round Pick?
Charles could sneak into the first round if a team buys into this concept that he could turn into a great joker tight end. He could stay in when needed and be an effective run stopper or shake off his run block and get open for a catch. Caputi sees the potential.
While many teams would be a solid fit for an athletic run stopper that can also pass protect and run routes, Bleacher Report Draft Expert Matt Miller has the New York Giants being a nice fit.
No matter where Charles lands, his outstanding performance on the bench press and his better-than-thought height may be enough to continue his climb up the board.
