Washington TE Austin Seferian-Jenkins recently worked out for the Lions, according to beat writer Dave Birkett.

The Lions recently signed Brandon Pettigrew to a four year deal, but the Lions would cap space by cutting him as soon as next year, according to Over The Cap. Therefore, he could be on a short leash. Joseph Fauria is more of a detached target, so they could be looking for another inline prospect.

"Seferian-Jenkins has "at least eight" visits scheduled."

An AFC personnel executive told NJ.com that he doesn't "want any part of" Washington TE Austin Seferian-Jenkins.

The decision maker, who earlier in the story said UNC's Eric Ebron was "completely overrated" and "a pain in the (butt)," shredded ASJ as well. "He’s more overrated and a bigger pain in the (butt) than the other guy," the personnel man said. "And he blocks like a wide receiver. I don’t want any part of him." An NFC scout quoted in the story said Seferian-Jenkins was "not a first-round pick" but accepted the usage of a second- or third-round pick as "not bad." The AFC personnel executive added that he believed ASJ was "lazy."

Washington TE Austin Seferian-Jenkins possesses "impressive" size and movement, says NFL Films' Greg Cosell.

Seferian-Jenkins has got "a more complete skill set" than UNC's Eric Ebron, according to Cosell, due to his blocking ability. Seferian-Jenkins underwent surgery late last month to stabilize a stress fracture in his left foot and probably won't be ready to participate in Washington's pro day on April 2nd. Although ASJ didn't work out at the NFL Combine, he measured in at 6 foot 5 and 1/2 inch and 262 pounds. He also has 33 3/4 inch arms and an 80-inch wingspan.

CBS Sports' Rob Rang reports that Washington TE Austin Seferian-Jenkins underwent surgery to stabilize a stress fracture in his left foot.

"After a consultation with agents, Todd France and Brian Ayrault of Five Star Athlete Management and family, Seferian-Jenkins opted for surgery to repair the issue," Rang wrote on Friday. The expected recovery for Seferian-Jenkins is approximately eight weeks, which most likely means he won't be participating in Washington's Pro Day on April 2nd.

Draft insider Tony Pauline reports that Washington TE Austin Seferian-Jenkins is suffering from a fractured foot.

This explains why Seferian-Jenkins isn't working out at the NFL's Scouting Combine. Pauline adds that he's being told that Seferian-Jenkins will not be healthy for his pro day. Although ASJ didn't work out, he measured in at 6 foot 5 and 1/2 inch and 262 pounds in Indy. He also has 33 3/4 inch arms and an 80-inch wingspan.

Washington TE Austin Seferian-Jenkins measured in at 6 foot 5 and 1/2 inch and 262 pounds at the NFL Combine.

Seferian-Jenkins also has 33 3/4 inch arms with an 80 inch wingspan. Rotoworld contributor Greg Peshek recently summarized ASJ's time at Washington, noting the limited yards after catch skill despite his utilization in those areas of the field. Seferian-Jenkins had the best drop rate of the five tight ends charted and he is a beast in the red zone.

CBS Sports' Dane Brugler notes that, from an evaluation perspective, Washington TE Austin Seferian-Jenkins leaves him wanting more.

Brugler did add that the "athletic and physical traits are there" for ASJ to succeed. Our own Josh Norris considers Seferian-Jenkins a top-40 talent at this point in the process, and he could flourish in an inline role while offering some versatility.

Washington junior TE Austin Seferian-Jenkins drew a third-round grade from draft insider Tony Pauline.

Jace Amaro and Eric Ebron predictably were assigned the only first-round ranks amongst tight ends. Pauline also gave Notre Dame's Troy Niklas a third-round grade, while Iowa's C.J. Fiedorowicz is in the 3-4 range. We think Seferian-Jenkins will go in the second round.

Washington junior TE Austin Seferian-Jenkins made his NFL decision official, telling reporters he will declare for May's draft.

This is no surprise, as many predicted Seferian-Jenkins would make this decision ever since his freshman season. The choice was probably easier when Steve Sarkisian left for USC. We really like ASJ's talent, and he will likely grade as the top traditional inline tight end, but he is not locked in to that spot. Expect him to draw a second-round selection.

One NFL scout believes Washington junior TE Austin Seferian-Jenkins is close to Rob Gronkowski from a talent perspective.

"Now he's lazy," the scout added. "Like there's always something with him. But he can be on the line and block." Seferian-Jenkins reportedly received a second-round tag from the Draft Advisory Board, and that projection will likely land him in the top-40 in May.

Washington junior TE Austin Seferian-Jenkins received a second-round projection from the NFL Draft Advisory Board, according to Fox Sports' Ross Jones.

Expect Seferian-Jenkins to leave following this season. The second-round projection is not a surprise, as Seferian-Jenkins might not have the flash of Eric Ebron or Jace Amaro, but he can be a very solid player in the NFL.

Washington coach Steve Sarkisian described junior TE Austin Seferian-Jenkins' play as "just a little bit out of sync, a little bit out of sorts."

"It hasn't been without trying," Sarkisian said on Tuesday. "I think Austin is working extremely hard." Sarkisian complimented Seferian-Jenkins' blocking, an improvement to his game that should aid his draft stock. "He is becoming more of an overall complete football player," Sarkisian said. "But believe me, we'd like to get him the football more that he has gotten the ball in his hands because he is a very good weapon for us." The 6-foot-6, 276 pound tight end is one of the most physically gifted players in college football, but Seferian-Jenkins has ceded "his title as the top tight end in college football to Eric Ebron of North Carolina," according to NFL.com writer Dan Greenspan, due to a "combination of his offseason DUI arrest and lack of production on the field."

NFL.com writer Dan Greenspan writes that Washington junior TE Austin Seferian-Jenkins "has been largely invisible in the Huskies' new up-tempo offense."

"Even though he still draws major attention from opposing defenses, a player of his immense physical talents (6-foot-6, 276 pounds) should be able to best any coverage," Greenspan wrote. "Seferian-Jenkins has plenty of quality tape, and his blocking has helped running back Bishop Sankey's great play, but he needed to be the All-America difference-maker he can be to elevate UW up to the same level as Oregon and Stanford." Seferian-Jenkins has collected only 16 receptions for 185 yards and three touchdowns in 2013.
