2010 NFL Draft Prospect Scouting Report:

Cody Slate, TE, Marshall

Cody Slate might not have too much in common with Randy Moss, but in 2006 he became the first freshman to lead Marshall in receiving since Moss. The 6-4 tight end caught 43 passes for 684 yards and six scores and was the most productive freshman receiver that season in the conference. Nothing changed during Slate's sophomore campaign when he once again led the team in receiving; this time with 66 catches for 818 yards. Slate did not lead the Thundering Herd in receiving during his junior campaign; missing a couple games due to injury did not help his cause, but he still totaled 510 yards on 40 receptions for eight touchdowns. Slate is once again leading the receiving attack at Marshall during his senior campaign. In ten games he has caught 50 passes for 607 yards and a team high four touchdowns. However, Slate is currently struggling with a right knee injury and he needs to prove that he is healthy for the NFL scouts. At 6-4 and 229 pounds, Slate is a great target in the red zone; his 23 career receiving touchdowns quickly prove that point. He is one of the best senior tight ends out there, but this year's class is not as strong as last year. 1/24 Update: Slate's knee injury kept him out the rest of the season, including during Marshall's Little Caesar's Pizza Bowl victory over Ohio. Slate will have to prove that he is healthy by the time the draft rolls around or his stock will continue to fall rapidly. However, if he is back at full strength, Slate has the potential to move from a late rounder to a third or fourth round selection.
