Austin Seferian-Jenkins was built to play tight end in the NFL. At 6'5", 262 pounds, the Washington standout is a matchup nightmare for defenders.

He has a basketball background, even appearing for the Huskies in that respect during his freshman year. As we've seen at the tight end position with players like Jimmy Graham, Tony Gonzalez, Antonio Gates and Julius Thomas, tight ends with a basketball skillset can be invaluable at the next level.

Seferian-Jenkins peaked as a junior, hauling in 69 receptions for 852 yards and seven touchdowns. In his senior season, he caught 33 less passes and only had 450 receiving yards.

ASJ saw his fair share of injuries in his senior campaign. It began with surgery on a pinkie fracture in August. At the NFL combine it was discovered that he suffered a stress fracture in his foot, which also required surgery. 

Now seemingly healthy, Seferian-Jenkins will look to show his new team he's still capable of being a top-notch pass-catcher, creating mismatches and physically dominating the opposition.

With fellow prospects Jace Amaro and Eric Ebron, Seferian-Jenkins is part of a tight end group that has the potential to make a huge impact in the NFL.
