    What did you think of Justin Helwege #80 Central Washington University?
    He had 6 catches for around 70 yards, including 2 first down grabs during the last drive that led to the score. Played a little TE too towards the end

    • Mike says:

      Ya Helwege had a couple big catches. Really good size (around 6-5 to 6-6) and has the frame to put on more weight if a team wants him to. He had a critical 1st down catch on the game winning drive, adjusting really well to a poor thrown ball. He has great upside and would be a quality 6th or 7th round pick.
