Jalen Wydermyer has been producing at a high level in the SEC since the age of 19. The Texas native broke out as a true freshman, catching 32 passes for 447 yards and six touchdowns en route to a 21% dominator rating. 

The Aggies tight end turned up the afterburners in Year 2 with an impressive 26% dominator rating. Wydermyer finished fourth in the FBS in receptions and ninth in PFF receiving grade (84.0). 

After back-to-back seasons of outstanding play, college football fans couldn't wait to see how Wydermyer would tie a bow on his Texas A&M career. Alas, the gargantuan tight end failed to live up to the lofty expectations, settling for a career-low PFF receiving grade (68.1) that ranked 25th out of 50 qualifying 2022 draft-eligible tight ends. 

However, Wydermyer's entire body of receiving work - all-time tight end leader in receiving yards, receptions and receiving touchdowns at Texas A&M - combined with his elusiveness and size paint the picture of a coveted prospect. It might just take some time for the 21-year-old to acclimate considering his lack of willingness as a blocker in the run game. 

Being a sub-par blocker isn't the worst trait for fantasy football, as tight ends need to run routes to score points. But any drawback to a young player's game that gives coaches an excuse to get them off the field is not ideal.

Wydermyer also opted out of all the testing drills at the NFL combine, casting some doubt into his athletic profile. There's a strong possibility that at his size - 255 pounds, 6-foot-4 - that he is slow. That could impact his real-life draft stock.

Jalen Wydermyer signs with Buffalo

Rookie TE Jalen Wydermyer has agreed to sign with the Buffalo Bills as an UDFA.

Fantasy Impact

Wydermyer was considered one of the top tight end prospects in this year's class by many, and it was a surprise to see him go undrafted. The Bills capitalize on the value, signing him quickly after the draft ended. He will have the chance to compete for a roster spot and play a backup role in Buffalo this season.
