Buccaneers selected Washington TE Austin Seferian-Jenkins with the No. 38 overall pick in the NFL draft
Seferian-Jenkins (6-foot-5 1/2, 262) won the 2013 Mackey Award as the nation's top tight end, finishing his three-year career with 146 catches for 1,840 yards (12.6 YPR) and 21 touchdowns. He missed the Combine due to a stress fracture in his foot, but reportedly ran a 4.56 forty with a 37 1/2-inch vertical in a pre-draft private workout -- mind-boggling measurables at his size. "ASJ" dabbled in basketball early in his UW career, and has long arms (33 3/4"). While his tape suggests Seferian-Jenkins plays closer to 4.7, his red-zone dominance can't be disputed, and he has tools to develop into an impact blocker. He profiles as an NFL mismatch creator and future TE1 in fantasy. The Buccaneers are building a figurative basketball team on offense, with 6-foot-5 wideouts Vincent Jackson and Mike Evans, and 6-foot-6 Seferian-Jenkins at tight end. May 9 - 7:45 PM

Washington TE Austin Seferian-Jenkins clocked a 4.56 second forty during a Friday workout with the Jets, reports Packer Report.

If true -- and that's no certainty, obviously -- this is an eye-opening time. Of course, there is plenty of motivation for someone from Seferian-Jenkins' camp to spread positive news -- whether true or not -- because ASJ did not test at the Combine due to foot surgery to repair a stress fracture. The 2013 Mackey Award winner reportedly weighed in at 6-foot-6, 271 pounds and posted a ridiculous 37 1/2-inch vertical. He should hear his name called in Round 2.

The Patriots hosted Washington TE Austin Seferian-Jenkins for a visit, according to NESN's Doug Kyed.

The visit could be related to medicals, as ASJ was held out of the Combine with a foot fracture, an injury he recently proclaimed as "fully healed." Seferian-Jenkins was used in a variety of different sets in school and uses great body control to win against defenders. He is limited after the catch, however.

NFL Media analyst Charles Davis believes Washington TE Austin Seferian-Jenkins is a "perfect" fit for the Patriots.

"Tight end is a need," Davis said on NFL Network's "Path to the Draft". "Rob Gronkowski is coming off what, five surgeries? You just can't predict that he's going to be totally healthy right out of the gate. ... I think Austin Seferian-Jenkins fits perfectly there and I think he would be available. Jace Amaro would be another possibility, but if Austin Seferian-Jenkins is really ready to go and back in the 260 (pounds) range, that would be my choice." The Patriots own the No. 29 pick, but could likely move back 10-15 slots and still have a chance to pick one of these prospects. Both are expected to go in the second round. NFL.com analyst Bucky Brooks' two-round mock draft has both Seferian-Jenkins and Amaro off the board by the 43rd overall pick, New England's next pick.

Washington TE Austin Seferian-Jenkins announced that his fractured foot has completely healed.

The 6-foot-5 1/2, 262-pound prospect, who went under the knife to repair a stress fracture in late February, is two weeks ahead of schedule in his recovery. Seferian-Jenkins won't crack Round 1, but this injury won't drop him out of Day 2. The reigning Mackey Award winner doesn't plan to work out prior to the draft on May 8-10.

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.

Washington TE Austin Seferian-Jenkins (foot) didn't participate in Wednesday's pro day.

Seferian-Jenkins underwent surgery in late February to stabilize a stress fracture in his left foot and is still recovering. The reigning Mackey Award winner doesn't plan to work out prior to the draft on May 8-10. "The injury doesn't appear to have hampered his interest from NFL teams, reports CBS Sports' Rob Rang. "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.
