Orson Charles

School: Georgia
Position: TE
Bio: Full-time starter the past two seasons and named an All-American in 2011 after winning all-conference honors the previous year. Receiving totals last year included 45 receptions/574 yards/5 touchdowns after he had 26/422/2 as a sophomore.
Positive: Athletic tight end who is best in motion. Solid route runner who quickly gets into breaks and stays low on exit, promptly positioning himself to make the catch. Extends his hands to make the reception away from his frame. Displays the speed necessary to get downfield and create mismatches in the secondary. Catches the ball with his hands and pulls the fastball from the air. Runs well, at times looks more like a large possession receiver and makes some incredibly athletic receptions downfield. Uses his frame to shield away defenders and protect the pass. Makes difficult catches with opponents draped on his back. Easily adjusts to the errant pass and does not break stride to catch the ball. Gives effort blocking, bending his knees and staying square.
Negative: Lacks functional football strength and can be a liability as a blocker. Not a big target for a tight end.
Analysis: Charles is a terrific athlete who's displayed constant improvement on the field the past three seasons and has starting potential at the next level. He best fits a system that puts tight ends in motion before the snap and has them run a variety of routes.
