Lorenzo Diamond

TE | (6-2, 255, 4.6) | Auburn
By Pro Football Weekly

Notes: Former high school sprinter. Married with a child. Redshirted in 1998. Started five games in '99 and caught 13 passes for 159 yards and one touchdown. Started eight games in 2000, when he caught 16-172-1. Started all but one game in '01 (10-105-1), when his role in the passing game was reduced, and was a backup in '02, when he caught 6-85-1. Opened a lot of eyes at his pro day in March with a good workout.

Positives: High-motor player who does the extras. Tenacious blocker. Hustles downfield to throw an extra block. Has a special-teams personality.

Negatives: Stiff-legged blocker who tends to get too narrow-based, causing him to lose leverage and fall off blocks. Is not a natural receiver. Lacks a feel for position, and his ball skills are shaky.

Summary: Played with two talented tight ends at Auburn, which may make it a little harder to like him because the other guys are so gifted. But he has talent and is an athlete, so he is likely to get a shot.
