The San Diego Chargers select Tight End Dedrick Epps from the University of Miami with their seventh round selection, pick number 235
DEDRICK EPPS PROFILE
"Epps was an on-and-off starter for pretty much his whole career at Miami, and while he has shown some consistency and play-making skills, he really does nothing that jumps off the screen at you. He is fairly athletic and can adjust to off-target throws to make difficult catches, but he also will drop some easy ones, as well. He lacks the speed and acceleration to be much of a threat down the seams. He is a more-than-willing blocker but lacks the size to be more than a finesse blocker who just gets the job done. He should compete for a backup position but lacks the tools to be a front-line player at the next level."
