Jermaine Gresham's Player ProfileThe best red-zone target in this draft also has a pair of the best hands. Gresham missed the entire 2009 season because of a major knee injury after bursting onto the scene in ’07 with 11 touchdowns.
As a junior in ’08 the imposing playmaker once again sparked the Sooners offense pulling down a team-leading 14 grabs in the end zone. Rookie tight ends rarely make a significant difference their first year. But he’s the kind of complete talent who will endear himself to teammates as he provides a huge safety blanket for his QB, demands attention away from defensive backs double-covering the receivers and helping open up holes for the RB.
Gresham is the complete package and has the skills to be a three-down player. He’s like fellow Big 12 TE Brandon Pettigrew in that he possesses rare blocking ability. Besides stretching the field and creating mismatches wherever he takes his 6’6 frame he also serves as a sixth offensive lineman strengthening the running game as well.
