Raiders NFL Draft: A Tight End Option In Every Round

7 of 7

Round 7 – Pharaoh Brown, Oregon

If Pharaoh Brown gets drafted, it’s going to mainly be one reason — physical ability. 6’6″ and 252 pounds, 35 3/8″ arm length (98th percentile), 10 3/8″ hands.

Brown was once considered a better NFL prospect, but injuries have dealt his draft stock a major hit. He nearly had to have his leg amputated following a horrific injury suffered in 2014, but he’s managed to recover and keep his NFL dream alive.

In the open field, Brown can be a problem for would-be tacklers. He can shed arm tackles with ease, and picked up plenty of YAC during his time at Oregon. He’s also a pretty good blocker, which increases his chances of catching on somewhere in the league.

Like many late-round pass catchers, Brown struggles with drops. He’s questionable at best as a blocker, there are some off-field concerns, and his health is up in the air.
