It won’t be this season. He’s going to need a year on the practice squad. Sounds like he has the mental makeup to handle what’s going to be thrown at him.

Sounds a bit high for me

This is true. Nobody was talking about some Colston guy making the squad some dozen years ago.

He can probably make the roster. He needs work blocking but catching and route running he seems to have those skills. Would not be the first time a TE made this roster that was a poor blocker.
