Bio: 
Three-year starter who caught 26 passes for 333 yards and one touchdown in 2016. Made 45 receptions for 560 yards and four touchdowns as a sophomore in 2015. Posted 49 catches for 465 yards and four scores in 2014. Played two games in 2013 before suffering a season-ending knee injury and redshirting.
Pos: 
Large, big-bodied receiver with an inconsistent game. Effectively uses his frame to shield defenders or protect the pass, comes across the middle of the field to make himself an available target and extends his hands to make the reception away from his frame. Uses his size as an advantage and is tough to bring down running after the reception and very effective as a blocker when he puts his mind to it. Flashes the ability to go up in a crowd and come down with the difficult reception. Flashes strong hands and occasionally snatches the pass from the air.
Neg: 
Lacks a quick release off the line of scrimmage, plays at one speed and does not get separation. Drops too many catchable throws and has a lot of passes bouncing off his hands. Does not always win out in battles.
Analysis: 
Early in his Texas A&M career Seals-Jones looked well on his way to being a dominant receiver prospect, but his game has not shown much progress over the past two seasons. He’s a huge target but an inconsistent pass catcher that drops too many throws and doesn’t do the little things well. Used on occasion as an H-back in the A&M offense, Seals-Jones could eventually transition to H-back or move tight end.
