Every year, there are players who emerge as late-round candidates in the NFL Draft and this year will feature a tight end with a familiar last name to those in NFL circles. Mike Flacco, the younger brother of Baltimore Ravens quarterback Joe Flacco, worked out for NFL scouts at his Pro Day and left them impressed.
According to NFL draft insider Tony Pauline, as many as 13 teams were in attendance for Flacco’s workout.
Tight end Mike Flacco, brother to Baltimore Ravens quarterback Joe Flacco, worked out for 13 teams yesterday and looked solid. He measured 6046/252lbs, timed 4.69s in the forty, 4.25s in the short shuttle and 7s in the three cone. Flacco pushed up 17 reps on the bench and 9-7 broad jump.
For teams looking to add an athletic tight end who will be considered among the “sleepers” of the draft, Flacco will be an intriguing option.
There is no guarantee that his talent will translate to the next level, but he is certainly worth a shot.
