OVERALL

Tre' McKitty's above-average build and length, paired with his adequate overall athleticism and toughness, will give him a chance to stick with a roster as a special teams player and developmental backup Y&F TE. McKitty will show some pop and flashes in the run game, but he lacks enough technique and bend to consistently sustain. He plays with toughness that can give him a path as a backup, but his lack of a true dominant trait may hinder his room for growth.
