One of the more intriguing prospects in this class, especially on Day 3, has to be San Diego State tight end Daniel Bellinger. Reason being, he’s one prospect that mirrors a future Hall of Fame tight end in Kansas City’s Travis Kelce, according to RAS, a statistical formula that the Rivera regime seems to take seriously.
Obviously, this doesn’t mean he’s going to be an all-time great, but from a tools perspective, on top of his tape, there’s definitely a reward here potentially for taking a small risk in the sixth round of the draft.
Standing 6-foot-6, Bellinger is raw as a receiver and as a blocker, but has put together some impressive outings down in Mobile in addition to his play at San Diego State. His impact as a receiver so far looks to be in vertical passing situations where he excels making contested catches, while he’s also a very fluid athlete in space.
Bellinger makes sense here because Washington could use size in their offense, especially if Logan Thomas isn’t available early on. Bellinger can be a red-zone target that Wentz and company could use not only this season, but if Bellinger can develop, he’s a guy that adds a new wrinkle down in the red zone.
