Nate Byham, TE, Pittsburgh

Nate Byham wasted no time contributing to the Pittsburgh offense. As a freshman he played in 11 games and caught a touchdown pass. As a sophomore in 2007 he started 11 games --missing one game due to a knee injury -- and caught 15 passes for 210 yards and a score. Yet, his best was yet to come. In 2008 he was a first team All-Big East selection and caught 20 passes for 260 yards. Byham is about a lot more than simply catching the ball and that has been proven thus far throughout his senior campaign. Fellow senior tight end Dorin Dickerson has emerged as the main pass catching tight end, but Byham is still playing great football. In the game against South Florida, it was Byham who helped out the offensive line against the superb pass rushing of the Bulls. Byham may not be the most flashy tight end around, or even on his own team for that matter, but he is a very well balanced player who, at 6-3 and 255 pounds, has the size to do everything. He is a proven blocker, a hard worker and is always a dangerous threat to catch the ball. Byham will not be a first round selection, but he could be a steady tight end for quite some time at the next level. 2/21 Update: Right now Byham is probably a fourth or fifth rounder. However, he has been invited to the NFL Combine and he will be given the opportunity to show his balanced abilities and that could move him past players like Andrew Quarless of Penn State, Dennis Pitta of BYU and a host of other probable mid-round tight ends.

Prediction: 6th Round

This guy will make someone a great TE. He is a real team player. I think he could have been used better by Pitt this year, however, I don't really think they had anyone who could block like Nate. Whatever team picks him up will be getting a player who is team oriented and will do his best in any position he may be used for. He is by far a tremendous athlete and under-rated as far as I'm concerned.
