Kevin Koger Scouting Report

"2012 NFL Draft prospect, Kevin Koger"Kevin Koger

Michigan

Ht. 6-4 Wt. 258

Strengths:  Koger is an big target that can go up and get the football in traffic.  He has long arms that uses to extend in jump ball situations.  Solid hands and is a natural plucker that rarely catches with his body.  He has a strong frame that should lend itself to being a good blocker in the NFL when he grasps technique.

Weaknesses:  Koger was a highly recruited TE out of high school that fell into the wrong system.  He’s raw from a technique standpoint as a blocker.  He will need to learn to sink his hips and gain balance on contact.  He isn’t real sudden and doesn’t possess great speed.  Needs to work get in and out of breaks as he has a tendency to run through them rather than sell. 

Bottom Line:  Koger is a raw TE that has some upside.  He was hampered by the system at Michigan but could develop into a solid TE down the road.  He will need some technique work as a blocker but has the strength to excel in that area.

Draft Projection:  5-6
