Dissly is a tremendously raw tight end prospect, having played the position for just two years after starting his career at Washington as a defensive lineman, but proved his value as a blocker in helping pave the way for Myles Gaskin’s productive sophomore and junior seasons. At 6’4” and 262 lbs., the native of Bozeman, Mont., offers good dimensions for the position, and while he’ll never be a receiving tight end in the mold of Rob Gronkowski or Jimmy Graham, his senior season number (21 catches for 289 yards and two touchdowns) show that he’s not entirely a one-dimensional player in the passing game.
For more information about Dissly, check out the profile of him we published earlier this week in advance of the draft.
