Pos: 
Two-year starter who posted a career-best 30 receptions for 430 yards last season. Well-rounded tight end with a three-down game. Tough, strong and gives effort as a blocker. Fires out to the second level and annihilates linebackers. Strong, stays square at the line of scrimmage and plays big football. Smooth into his pass routes, makes the difficult reception in a crowd and consistently grabs the ball with his hands. Comes away with tough catches when defenders are draped on him and takes a pounding but holds onto the ball. Breaks down well and plays with consistent knee bend.
Neg: 
Lacks great downfield speed and won’t streak into the secondary. Average production in the Georgia system.
Analysis: 
Nauta has watched his game take off the past two seasons, and although he’s not a true downfield threat, he can play three downs as a pass catcher and blocker. More of a second tight end on the depth chart, Nauta offers upside potential and should be a productive NFL player for years to come.
