Combine Session Report: Fullbacks
The other prospect that really stood out was Thomas Tapeh. Like Fleming, Tapeh showed a lot of offensive skill. His pass catching abilities were outstanding and Tapeh looked natural extending to pluck the pass out of the air. Tapeh was even able to get down the field and make the deep reception, displaying both focus, concentration as well as the ability to contort for the difficult grab.
Lousaka Polite also improved his draft stock with a good performance. Running faster then most expected during his turns in the forty, Polite displayed an excellent straight-line burst of speed and some explosion. His offensive skills were minimal as his speed was greatly diminished running on the outside and Polite's pass catching skills were, in a word, terrible. He flat out dropped a lot of throws and could not adjust to the errant pass.
If you are looking for a throwback at fullback then Travis Wilson is your man. Wilson practiced with great hustle throughout the session and showed adequate hands. He is not quick and has difficulty getting outside of tackle but did improve his draft stock.
Likewise Mike Karney is a blocker first and foremost. While he did a solid job catching the ball Karney looked unathletic and couldn't run with the rest of the pack.
Sean McHugh had a disappointing session. Lacking speed, footwork and quickness, it was McHugh's hands that really looked poor. This was surprising as he caught the ball reasonably well at Penn State and at 6-feet 5-inches many project McHugh to tight end.
Alex Wade worked hard all day but did not stand out in any single aspect running poorly, not catching the ball well and lacking any kind of quickness.
