Dalton Kincaid

Dalton Kincaid is the best receiver in the bunch and is absolutely a weapon as a slot and move-around tight end. He can beat you so many ways and is a big, athletic target who is very difficult matchup.

Possessing a wide catch radius, snatching balls on the run, and very explosive. Having receptions of 25 or more yards at least eight times in 2022.

He is a bona fide Y-iso tight end with the capability to be the motor of a passing attack. Not just a dependable safety value.

What is a Y-iso tight end you may be asking me? They are tight ends who can stay on one side of the field and have the ability to defeat defenders in one-on-one battles.

Dalton Kincaid has that kind of talent. He can create absolutely unbalancing mismatches in the passing game.

His ball skills can take the Dallas Cowboys’ passing attack to new heights. This doesn’t mean that Jake Ferguson and Peyton Hendershot have no role to play. You want to change a strength into something extraordinary.

I’m not worried about his blocking at all. He will become more adept and powerful in his run blocking. His receiving skill sets him apart from the other members of the group.

I would have no qualms about the Dallas Cowboys choosing Dalton Kincaid as the 26th.

Brayden Willis

The outlook is that Brayden Willis, a tight end prospect, will be taken in the late rounds, however I believe he should be getting more recognition.

He is an alpha male. His approach to the dirty work is something that coaches truly appreciate.

He takes great pride in blocking and playing the game with a physical edge, both as a receiver and a ball carrier.

He was a five year senior, commended by his coaches as a “program guy” who is a vocal leader that will make sure his teammates are held responsible.

He was well-versed in special teams (845 career snaps) and was a go-to for kick returns and punt coverages (one blocked punt in his career).

Last season, Willis had a career-high 39 receptions for 514 yards and the most touchdowns on the team with seven. He made 10 carries with the football for a total of 26 yards and threw a 24-yard touchdown pass to Marcus Major, the running back.

"“Nobody on our team has more command and respect than Brayden.” – Head coach Brent Venables"

I have a higher grade on him than most. I believe the Cowboys may be considering him in the 4th round.

Willis looks like one of those players who are selected late in the draft, only to prove to be much better than his draft selection.

Years later, it make people ponder why he was picked so low in the draft.
