RD 5 - PK 37 @kcchiefs: James O'Shaughnessy(TE-Illinois St.) -http://t.co/CGl0zFLKhK #NFLDRAFT— NFL Network (@nflnetwork) May 2, 2015
Well, they're just flying off the board like hotcakes now. O'Shaughnessy is a depth pick for the Chiefs, an option to either place behind or alongside Travis Kelce depending on how the 2015 season unfolds.
Scouts have described him as a "basketball" tight end, which is I guess de rigieur terminology post- Antonio Gates and Jimy Graham. He's a good receiver, but needs work on both his route running and his in-line blocking (which goes right along with being a little bit lacking in the leg strength department). He showed well at Northwestern's pro day, and was drafted right around where everyone expected him to go.
