NFL Draft: Getting to know Travis Beckum

We looked at many of the players the Giants drafted throughout the course of the weekend. Right now, let's take a closer look at Travis Beckum, the tight end from Wisconsin the Giants drafted in the third round (100th overall).

Tom Coughlin said Sunday that the Giants consider Beckum a potential H-Back type, and the scouting reports indicate that would be the proper use of his talents.

From Draft Countdown.

Is in many ways a wide receiver in a tight ends body...Can also line up out wide or in the slot and is a mismatch waiting to happen...Probably would've gone much higher had he not been hurt as a senior.

Beckum, according to Mocking the Draft, was the top tight end prospect in the nation before breaking his leg last season.

The funniest thing I have read? This gem comes from Rotoworld.

A nice complement to Kevin Boss, one of the best blocking tight ends in the league. Beckum is a vertical threat who can't block a lick, but only fell this far because he broke his leg as a senior.

Did you ever think you would hear Boss referred to as one of the league's best blocking tight ends?
