Ashland College held its pro day at the local high university and 16 NFL clubs were represented, including the Bears, Saints, Steelers, Raiders and Lions, who all sent their own tight ends coaches to sort out Adam Shaheen, one of the fastest risers inside the 2017 NFL Draft. Shaheen (6-6, 278) stood on each one of his numbers at your combine, but was put by using a brisk workout that received everyone talking. So much so, he left his master day with private workouts create with six teams: Cleveland, Tampa Bay, Arizona, Philadelphia, Dallas and Tennessee. >/p> The tight end class is one of the deepest we've seen inside years, but I think Feb 5th morning of draft week -- the morning after Round 1 ends -- it will have teams vying to get near the top of Round 2 to adopt this tight end.
