Ed “Pi Double i” Henderson
The Los Angeles Rams have agreed with the second UDFA of the 2018 NFL Draft, Codey McElroy, tight end from SE Oklahoma State. Mcelroy is a player that has real talent as he’s played college baseball at the University of Texas, played minor league baseball with the Atlanta Braves organization, and he ended up at Oklahoma State to play basketball.
It seemed as if baseball and basketball wasnt enough for him to play, he then walked-on to Southeastern Oklahoma State to play football as a tightend. He's learned how to play tight end in a matter of weeks, as he caught three touchdown passes and helped the team to become the #19 nationally ranked team in Division II Fooball.
Codey McElroy Highlights
The 6’7” 260 pound McElroy, has great size to play as a NFL tight end. He ran a 4.69 40 yard at his pro day, as that would have been the fifth fastest of the tight ends at the 2018 NFL Draft. He caught 14 passes for 173 yards and five touchdowns. The statistics don’t speak in volume, however he was used as a red zone target, where he caught five touchdowns. That can’t be overlooked, and will transition well at the next level.
As a former professional shortstop, and collegiate power-forward, his transition from sport-to-sport, shows this kid is very talented.
