*Top Performer
COMBINE ANALYSIS

STRENGTHS: Has a good compact frame with long arms and big hands. Chippy, competitive blocker -- latches on and plays through the whistle. Good finisher. Natural hands catcher. Catches in a crowd and will shake off a hit and run through contact. Rises to a challenge and matched up well as a base blocker vs. Alabama's Adrian Hubbard. Functional positional, pass protector. Very durable.

BOTTOM LINE: A try-hard, developmental blocker capable of catching on as a No. 3 tight end with continued improvement in the weight room. Possesses above-average base blocking ability, hands and foot speed to carve a role.

SENIOR BOWL ANALYSIS

Crockett was a Wednesday add-on to the North roster after playing in the East-West Shrine game the previous week. He has a rangy build, and after going through two practices, had a standout game on Senior Bowl Saturday with 5 receptions for 62 yards and a TD. Another zone-type route runner who can get open with leverage and length, he has the frame to add weight and should be able to make a roster as a contributing backup while he continues to develop physically.

SENIOR BOWL SCOOP: Crockett helped CSU go 8-6 with a New Mexico Bowl win over Washington State. He totaled 47 receptions for 577 yards (12.3avg) and 2 touchdowns, which earned him first team All-Mountain West Conference honors.
