2012 NFL Draft Prospect Scouting Report:
Michael Egnew, TE, Missouri
Egnew has long stride speed and can create after the catch. He's a very good route runner for his position and will work defenders ragged with nice cuts inside and outside. Egnew does a great job boxing out defenders, using his frame to his advantage. He has good, but not great hands. Sometimes gets caught trying to get upfield before securing the ball.
He will need to be coached up playing out of a three-point stance. Missouri opted to use him out in space by creating mismatches against smaller defenders. Egnew's blocking is very limited and it'll take time for him to grow as a well-rounded tight end. For now, he's a wide receiver in a tight end's body.
