Stanford TE Levine Toilolo Reportedly Enters NFL Draft

Austin GreenCorrespondent IFebruary 2, 2017

Stanford tight end Levine Toilolo will reportedly join teammate Zach Ertz by entering the 2013 NFL draft, according to David Lombardi of FOX Sports:

Levine Toilolo heading to NFL along with Zach Ertz. Ryan Hewitt, Luke Kaumatule, Davis Dudchock, maybe even Cajuste w/ big shoes to fill.

Toilolo is seen as one of the top tight end prospects in the country. His massive 6'8", 265-pound frame makes him a nightmare for defenders. He also has decent speed (4.86 40-yard dash), good leaping ability and above-average ball skills.

Toilolo isn't a polished route-runner, but he has shown improvement in that area throughout his time at Stanford. In his junior season, Toilolo was the Cardinal's third-most productive receiver, catching 24 passes for 393 yards and four touchdowns.

He is listed as the No. 5 tight end prospect by ESPN (Insider).

Ertz, who committed earlier on Monday, could be the first tight end selected in April's draft. Like Toilolo, his size (6'6", 249 lbs) is a major asset. He is also a crisp route-runner, and he has experience being the No. 1 option.

This season, Ertz caught 69 passes for 898 yards and six touchdowns. He was a finalist for the Mackey Award, which is given to the nation's top tight end.

Ertz is widely projected as a first-round pick.
