Dunbar trying out as a NFL Tight End

Recommended Posts

I saw one report that Malik Dunbar was invited to try out at TE with the Baltimore Ravens? Can anyone confirm this?

I remember some of us making comments on this board the last couple of years that Dunbar had a good physique for a athletic TE. We thought he should have tried out with the Tiger football team going into his last year here...

I just can't see him making it...given he has never played the position, even in HS, I think...but I am intrigued if he does give it go...

What does he have to lose? What is his weight?  

6'6 230. Could probably afford to put on about 5-10 more pounds.

Dunbar is fast and has great hops if he can learn route running and can catch he just might make it. It is worth a shot. More Power to him.

He was one of my favorite players. Effort wise, I never questioned him. Seems like a good teammate and likable guy too.

Many basketball players have tried Tony G’s path. Blocking is usually the biggest obstacle.

Jimmy Graham was primarily a hoops guy, too, right? They're out there for sure.

Jimmy Graham isn't much of a blocker so maybe he can be of that mold. He certainly is bouncy like Jimmy was at Miami on the hardwood, but Malik is a much smoother athlete it feels like. Might be recency bias though.

Point to Tiger!

 Besides the ones who have been mentioned in here ( Jimmy G and Tony G) Julius Thomas, Rico Gathers, Antonio Gates and Darren Fells all were College basketball players by trade who went on to become NFL Tight Ends. It would be amazing if Malik became a stud TE. It expands BRUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUCE recruiting pitch even further!!!! lol

If he can catch he'd make alot of money. Julius peppers is my favorite two sport star....I don't know if Terrell Owens played officially for Chattanooga. I think he may have though. I always wondered why you don't see more guys go from basketball to D end
