Auburn H-back/TE Phil Lutzenkirchen failed to improve on his 4.94 forty from the Combine, running a 4.98 at the school's Pro Day.
Per Gil Brandt, Lutzenkirchen "had a 32-inch vertical jump and 9-foot-4 broad jump. His time in the short shuttle time was 4.32 seconds and 7.05 seconds in the three-cone drill." We wonder if Lutzenkirchen's hip surgery has slowed him down, because the Tiger was one of the better H-back's in college football in 2010 and 2011. Wed, Mar 6, 2013 08:39:00 AM

Auburn TE Philip Lutzenkirchen will attend the Senior Bowl.

Lutzenkirchen's final season was cut short after undergoing season ending hip surgery. He previously stated he will not attend the Senior Bowl unless he feels 100 percent healthy, but this is a step in the right direction. We love his versatility as an H-back or move tight end.

Auburn senior TE Phil Lutzenkirchen said on Tuesday that he will not attend the Senior Bowl or Combine unless he is 100 percent healed from injury.

"If I'm not 100 percent, if I'm 95 percent, I'll have to say no to those," Lutzenkirchen said. The senior underwent hip surgery a few weeks ago, effectively ending his final collegiate season. We love Lutzenkirchen's versatility as an H-Back or move tight end. He is one to watch on the third day.

Auburn head coach Gene Chizik announced that senior TE Phil Lutzenkirchen will undergo his season ending hip surgery this week.

Chizik added that he expects it to be a "long recovery" and that Lutzenkirchen actually played through plenty of pain for a large part of the season. We hope the senior is healthy in time for pre-draft work since he is one of our favorite third day prospects as a versatile offensive option.

Updating a previous item, Auburn head coach Gene Chzik announced that senior TE Phil Lutzenkirchen is officially out for the rest of the season.

Lutzenkirchen traveled with the team to Vanderbilt but did not play. The injury is believed to be to his hip, nit no specifics were disclosed. "He's still going to be here, being the emotional leader, but it's a big loss," junior quarterback Clint Moseley said. Hopefully Lutzenkirchen can heal in time for pre-draft all star games.

Auburn senior TE Phil Lutzenkirchen will miss Saturday's game, and possibly the entire season, with an undisclosed hip injury.

No specifics were given on the injury, but this is a terrible blow to the already struggling Auburn offense. Although he does not receive enough targets, we consider Lutzenkirchen the Tigers' best offensive talent and love his NFL potential as a versatile H-back/inline tight end, especially in the third day.

Auburn senior TE Philip Lutzenkirchen is expecting to see seven to ten targets per game in 2012 after taking on an increased blocking role last season.

In Gus Malzahn's offense, Lutzenkirchen played a hybrid H-back role and only managed 24 receptions for 238 yards and seven touchdowns in 2011. With incoming fullback transfer Jay Prosch handling the blocking duties, Lutzenkirchen will see more time at a traditional tight end spot under new offensive coordinator Scot Loeffler. Expect Lutzenkirchen to build on his 2011 numbers, especially when asked to stretch the field. We consider him one of the more underrated senior tight end prospects.

Philip Lutzenkirchen will be sidelined this spring following shoulder surgery, but he is looking forward to being a true tight end in the Tigers' offense.

New OC Scot Loeffler intends to make Lutzenkirchen a full-time tight end instead of also spending time as an H-back. This will allow Lutzenkirchen, who will be a senior, to operate as a true tight end and perhaps attract more attention from the NFL. He caught 24 passes last season, 7 of them for touchdowns. Fourteen of his 44 career receptions have resulted in six points.
