Pos: 
Athletic pass-catching tight end with big upside. Quickly releases off the line into pass routes, immediately gets to top speed and extends his hands to grab the pass away from his frame. Nicely makes the reception in stride and takes a pounding but holds onto the ball. Occasionally lined up in the slot and does a good job. Blocks with knee bend and leverage, stays square and gives effort.
Neg: 
Must learn to play to his speed. Lacks strength as a blocker and struggles to finish off opponents.
Analysis: 
Raymond comes off a terrific season and should only get better as he physically matures and learns the NFL system. He's a solid pass catcher with the size to turn into an effective blocker, and Raymond should be a solid second tight end at the next level.
