Tyrant Analysis

Though Phazahn had a down year without Coach Moorhead, he still remains a very intriguing prospect. He is raw, but he has an elite blend of size and athleticism for the Tight End position. He has more than enough speed to threaten the field and he currently has a draftable grade from us here.
