Pos: 
Solid pass-catching tight end with limited upside. Moved into the starting lineup at Kentucky as a freshman and finished with a career-best 30 catches for 318 yards as a senior. Tenacious, displays outstanding vision as a blocker and stays with the action. Starts with good knee bend and flashes ability as a position blocker. Adjusts to the errant throw during pass routes, effectively extends his hands to offer the quarterback a target and snatches the ball away from his frame. Possesses hand-eye coordination, easily makes the reception in stride and works to separate from opponents.
Neg: 
Lacks quickness and slow off the line of scrimmage. Not explosive into blocks. Must improve his strength as a blocker. Not a downfield pass-catching threat.
Analysis: 
Conrad is a solid pass-catching tight end who gives effort as a blocker but lacks the pure athleticism for the next level.
