Travis McCall FB/TE 6'2 260 Alabama

By: Robert Davis

McCall graduated in 2004, but wasnít immediately eligible for the Tide so he waited a year to enroll. As a true freshman in 2005, he earned time at the TE spot and caught three balls for 22 yards on the year. As a sophomore he started 12 games and ended up having his best statistical season with eight catches for 105 yards and one touchdown. As a junior he played in all 13 games but started just eight and caught six balls for 45 yards. McCall was again a full time starter as a senior and this time he caught seven passes for 52 yards.

Strengths

McCall is an excellent lead blocker. He has a short but sturdy frame, is tough, and very strong. He can get movement in the running game, but shows decent athleticism to block in space. McCall has been a tight end in college, but his size and blocking ability should make for an easy transition to fullback. The potential at both positions should make him a valuable role player in the NFL.

Weaknesses

McCall hasnít shown much as a receiver during his career. He played in a run oriented offense in high school, then caught just 24 passes in four years with the Tide. His lack of height may make him just a situation tight end, but it could lead to a move to FB, where he could become a tremendous lead blocker. That still requires a position switch and that could take some time to learn.

Future

McCall may be an unknown as a receiver, but everyone knows he is a very good blocker. That skill will translate to the NFL, as long as he can show that he has some potential as a receiver or can provide an impact on special teams. He does not carry much value as a playmaker, but the role he could provide in the NFL could be very valuable.
