And how often does this happen?

Re: TE or WR
height is a mismatch. I dont think Wickeds saying hes a guy that can beat you on every level, but dont undervalue size and catch radius, especially in the redzone. If he can sheild with his body even remotely (being a bball player suggests he can) hell have a good chance of being a threat in man coverage in those scenarios and certainly in zones regardless of his other abilities (as long as he can read a defense). you dont draft him to be Pittas role, you draft him for his strengths, which arent necessarily a vertical threat or slot WR. Hes a blocking TE with Redzone capabilities and good hands to be able to take advantage of zone coverage. late 3rd, that could be value depending on the draft. Personally I think hes an upgarde over dickson (a 3rd rounder that we used mostly in a blocking role), despite dickson having a tremendous athletic ability. hell be a better blocker and I think hes better at catching. Ill admit Dickson had more upside due to that athletic ability but that doesnt mean he doesnt warrant consideration at 3 and beyond.

In and out of his breaks may be another story but I think you can work with him and his size. ill be interested to see his combine workout. 3 cone and 40 should go a long way in saying what hes capable of being.
