An AFC director of scouting indicated a belief that Michigan senior TE Jake Butt will improve as a blocker in the NFL.
"He's going to be a good pro. Everyone wants Kelce, Olsen or Gronk but those are elite players," he said. "Butt is dependable and will make first downs. They all get better as blockers once they get up here." NFL Media's Lance Zierlein compares Butt to Zach Miller. "While he's shown ability to operate as an intermediate target as well, he might lack the athleticism and separation to uncover against NFL safeties and some linebackers in man coverage," Zierlein wrote. "Butt must improve greatly as a blocker to reach his potential as a Y tight end. However, his ability as a reliable, productive target should earn him an early starter's nod with a chance to become a solid pro." Butt's junior and senior seasons both ended with Big Ten Conference Tight End of the Year honors (51-654-3 in 2015; 46-546-4 in 2016). Butt is currently rehabbing after suffering a torn right ACL in the Citrus Bowl loss to Florida State. Feb 27 - 1:10 PM
