5. Great size
Let’s face it. Any NFL tight end enters the league with two jobs. On one hand, he must cause matchup nightmares to the opposing secondary. On the other hand, he must be able to block well enough to set the edge and protect the quarterback. At 6-foot-4 and 262 pounds, this young man brings a punishing load to any defender he comes into contact with. Throughout four quarters, that punishment adds up.
At the cost of a fourth round draft pick, the Seahawks selected a player whose upside is very high in any number of areas. He can excel at special teams. He brings experience to the team from defense, blocking, pass catching, and even in short yardage running offense.
Dissly has the right size and strength to garner plenty of attention from coaches and opponents. But the strongest attribute he adds to the seahawks is his versatility. In short, he can deliver at practically any role the Seahawks need a player to step up.
