David Tyree

SELECTED BY HOUSTON , ROUND 7, PICK 10, OVERALL PICK 211
WR | (6-0, 198, 4.6) | Syracuse
By Pro Football Weekly

Notes: Redshirted in 1998. Played in every game from '99 through '02. Caught seven passes for 89 yards and no touchdowns in 1999; 14-333-3 in 2000; and 18-233-0 in '01, when he started seven games. Blocked three punts in 2000 and another in '01 and excelled on kick coverage units, making 20 tackles last year. Started 12-of-12 games in '02, catching 36-559-3 and rushing four times for 35 yards. Returned one punt for 25 yards and had nine-catch, 229-yard performance vs. Virginia Tech.

Positives: Tough contributor on all special teams. Good kick blocker and very physical and aggressive covering kicks. Vocal leader and captain. Has big hands. Good blocker.

Negatives: Slow off the line of scrimmage. Lacks initial quickness and a burst. Not a sharp route runner and doesn't run well after the catch. Does not have good concentration and drops passes. Lacks explosiveness and quick-twitch. Doesn't burst out of his breaks or get separation. Not sudden. Below-average running after the catch.

Summary: Is not gifted enough to make an NFL roster as a receiver, lacking explosiveness and a burst to separate, but special-teams play could be his ticket.
