Gillmore started 35 games at tight end in his four years at Colorado State and was a reliable passing target in the Rams offense, recording 111 receptions and eight touchdowns in his collegiate career.
The Texas native was also named first-team All-Mountain West and put on the John Mackey Award watch list for Most Outstanding Tight End in NCAA Division I for his strong 2013 performance (47 rec, 577 yds, 2 TDs). Gillmore also turned some heads in Mobile with his excellent performance in the Senior Bowl.
At 6-foot-6 and 260 pounds, Gillmore offers a big receiving target in the middle of the field, but he is also known for being an excellent run blocker. It’s Gillmore’s combination of size, receiving ability, and affinity to block that will intrigue plenty of NFL teams come draft time.
To learn more about Gillmore, we reached out to him, and I had the privilege to speak with him over the phone.
