Bio: 
Three-year starter who earned First Team All-Conference USA honors and finished second in the conference with 10 receiving touchdowns, making 54 receptions for 490 yards in 2017. Named Honorable Mention All-Conference USA and caught 28 passes for 298 yards and five scores as a junior. Made a team-high nine touchdown receptions and posted 44 catches for 417 yards in 2015. Made 17 catches for 149 yards and two TDs as a true freshman.
Pos: 
Underrated tight end or H-back prospect with marginal size and speed. Stays square as a blocker, keeps his feet and hands active and gives effort the entire play. Keeps his head on a swivel and helps out linemates. Displays outstanding blocking vision. Solid route-runner, quickly gets into breaks and stays low on exit. Extends his hands to make receptions away from his frame and displays outstanding hand-eye coordination and focus. Lays out and extends to make difficult catches in a crowd. Effectively uses his frame to shield away defenders.
Neg: 
Possesses average blocking strength and rarely finishes. Lacks the speed to truly stretch the seam.
Analysis: 
Yurachek is not a great athlete but is a terrific football player who does the little things well and has the ability to make a roster as the third man on the depth chart.
