Mike Caussin -  TE
Team: James Madison DukesHeight: 6-5 Born: //
Class-Eligibility: GS-SrWeight: 245 Birthplace: Springfield, VA


Scouting Report
Caussin played four years at FCS program James Madison and did not participate in the NFL combine, so he's not one of the marquee names in the draft. That doesn't mean he couldn't mature into an effective pass-catching tight end. He has good speed for the position, as he can reportedly run the 40-yard dash in the vicinity of 4.5 seconds. Caussin enjoyed his best season statistically as a senior, catching 25 passes for 438 yards - both career highs - and four touchdowns, including a career-long 65-yarder. That came Sept. 19 in a 44-16 victory over VMI - a game in which he also had a 26-yard TD reception and finished with 145 yards on three catches. In his collegiate finale, a Nov. 21 win over Towson, Caussin hauled in a career-best seven passes for 75 yards. His performance in 2009 earned him third team All-Colonial Athletic Association honors. Already a strong receiver, Caussin may need to add some muscle to be an adequate blocking tight end at the next level. It's possible a team may take a flyer on Caussin in the final two rounds of the draft. Otherwise, he'll find himself in the free agent pool, where he should draw some interest.
