Sprinkle should solidify Washington TE depth
- Washington selected TE Jeremy Sprinkle with the 154th pick of the NFL draft. He is the Arkansas Razorbacks’ all-time leader in receiving touchdowns by a tight end with 11, and his four touchdowns in 2016 tied him for second among SEC tight ends.
- Sprinkle ranked 13th in the tight end class with an 81.0 receiving grade in 2016. His 1.8 yards per route run (which was above the FBS average of 1.3) ranked fifth in the SEC.
- He was effective in the slot, accumulating the 12th-most yards per route run from the slot the last three seasons. Sprinkle displayed the ability to win on both levels, catching four of five catchable passes of 20 yards or more in his college career.
- He has displayed very reliable hands, having only dropped five passes out of 72 catchable targets over the last three seasons. His drop rate of 5.71 ranked him fourth of all tight ends in 2016.
