Pos: 
Tough, hard-working tight end with a complete game but limited upside. Fluidly releases off the line of scrimmage, runs solid routes and plays with great quickness. Immediately gets into breaks and positions himself on exit to make the reception. Finds the clearing to make himself an available target, extends his hands and makes the reception away from his frame. Stout and takes big hits but holds onto the throw. Stays square as a blocker and controls opponents at the point of attack.
Neg: 
Lacks any semblance of speed or ability to get downfield. Average athlete.
Analysis: 
After not being graded by scouts entering the season, Sokol did enough in 2018 to get late-round consideration or get signed as a priority free agent. He gets the most from his ability and could have a career at the next level as third tight end.
