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.
