3. Cincinnati TE Josiah Deguara
Believe it or not, Cincinnati is not the smallest school on this list. Josiah Deguara is a name that you might have never heard before, but he’s got talent as a late-round senior that is rare to find.
Deguara first caught my eye against UCLA this season when he made some big plays throughout the whole game. As a receiver, Deguara was one of the most talented on the Bearcats and his ability should be on full display this week throughout practice, especially in one-on-ones. Like most college tight ends, blocking seems to be the weakest part of his game, but he’s got the raw talent to develop.
I know the idea of adding another tight end with a receiving strength and blocking weakness isn’t what the fans want right now, but with Jason Garrett’s offense and the current NY Giants roster, I wouldn’t expect too many multiple tight end sets where Deguara would play immediately. Developing Deguara as a blocker and stashing him away in case Evan Engram gets hurt (knock on wood again), with a late-round value wouldn’t be too impactful if he ends up not working out.
