Eagles Draft Missouri State TE Clay Harbor

The Eagles selected tight end Clay Harbor with a pick acquired from Dallas in the fourth round, the 125th overall selection. Here's Tony Pauline from Sports Illustrated and DraftInsider.net with his scouting report.

TE Clay Harbor, Missouri State
Pos. Rank: 17 Grade: 7th Round-FA Height: 6-2.5 Weight: 252 40: 4.62 Year: 5-Sr.

The Good: An athletic pass catching tight end with reliable hands, He plays with good knee bend, effectively works his hands to get off jams at the line of scrimmage and displays the ability to create mismatches in the secondary. He uses his frame to box out defenders, extends his hands and makes the reception away from his body. He runs relatively sharp routes, displays good eye/hand coordination, and he is very natural catching the ball.

The Bad: He gives effort blocking yet he lacks natural bulk, strength, and gets minimal results. He lacks elite tight end speed and may have difficulty beating opponents downfield at the next level.

The Verdict: Harbor is a terrific athlete who will only get better as he physically matures. He must improve his blocking yet is good enough catching the ball that he will get looks as a second tight end at the next level.
