The stats don’t necessarily jump off the page because C.J. wasn’t utilized as much as he should’ve been in Eddie Gran’s offense. Some teams may see the numbers and take a pass on a guy like C.J. Conrad, even though the tight end position isn’t a glamour position by any means and he was involved in a very run-heavy offense at Kentucky. At 6-5, 262 pounds Conrad would be one of the smaller tight ends on the depth chart, which wouldn’t help him on the offensive line, but wouldn’t necessarily hurt him either. More than likely he would be used as more of a receiver than blocking depth on the offensive line.
