Bio: 
Two-year starter who made 17 career receptions for 185 yards and three touchdowns. Academic All-Big Ten during all four of his seasons at Nebraska.
Pos: 
Hard-working rotational tight end who does the little things well. Quickly releases off the line into pass routes, uses his hands to separate from defenders and finds the open spot in underneath coverage. Extends to make the reception away from his frame and gives effort running after the catch, fighting for extra yardage. Blocks with good lean, squares into opponents and takes them from the action. Explosive at the point.
Neg: 
One speed tight end with a limited burst. Must improve his playing balance. Minimal production on the college level.
Analysis: 
Cotton has athletic limitations but looks the part and could make it as a 3rd tight end if he plays well on special teams.
