Even though the Cleveland Browns extended the contract of veteran tight end Gary Barnidge this past season, could the team be looking for the league's next hybrid gem in April's draft to complement him? This past Friday, Brigham Young University (BYU) held their Pro Day, and a source tells Dawgs By Nature that the Browns met extensively with flex tight end Terenn Houk.
Houk reportedly had a 10-foot, 2-inch broad jump, which if he's labeling himself as a tight end would've ranked second among tight ends at the NFL Combine. Other reports say that Houk wishes he would've performed better with his 40-time, though.
As a senior, Houk caught 37 passes for 490 yards and 2 touchdowns. He measures in at 6-4, 255 lbs. Right now, Houk's stock might be low enough for the Browns to grab him as an undrafted free agent. If they feel like other teams might swoop in on him, though, he could be a candidate for one of the later rounds of the draft.
These guys all did great for the NFL scouts at today's Pro Day at BYU. Great young men & players. #becomeElite pic.twitter.com/RRgxwcC3eW— QBElite Dustin Smith (@qbelite) March 25, 2016
