Overview:

Luke Stocker is a good all-round tight end that can beat you in many ways. He’s not a great athlete but he is smooth and gets the job done. He’s got great hands but he has a tendency to body catch some passes and this leads to some ugly drops. He’s not very polished as a blocker but shows flashes that he can be dominant. He’ll need some time but with good coaching there’s no reason why he wouldn’t be successful in the NFL.
