Iowa Pro Day results

Krieger-Coble was not invited to the NFL Scouting Combine, but he did participate in Iowa's Pro Day, posting the following numbers:

40-yard dash: 4.8 seconds

Bench press:  10 repetitions of 225 pounds

Vertical jump: 33.5 inches

Broad jump: 9 feet, 2 inches

3-cone drill: 7.72 seconds

20-yard shuttle: 4.52 seconds


Summary: While it seems like a stronger line of differentiation is being drawn between tight ends who are extensions of the offensive line and those that have more passing targets than some receivers, versatility is still an important quality to offer. Krieger-Coble was able to play-in line and help the run game and showed reliable hands in the passing game during his senior season and a week of practices at the Senior Bowl. He lettered three years in high school varsity football as a receiver, tight end and linebacker and was a four-year letterman in basketball and baseball.

Stacking up:NFL Media analyst Mike Mayock initially ranked Krieger-Coble as his fifth-best tight end in this year's crop of players, but has slid him out of the rankings.

Family tradition:Krieger-Coble's mother, Amy Krieger, played softball at Iowa. He and his first cousin, George Kittle (a redshirt junior in 2015) were the number one and two options at tight end for the Hawkeyes last season. Kittle posted 20 receptions for 290 yards and six touchdowns. Kittle's father, Bruce, played offensive line at Iowa (1977-79, 1981) and co-captained the 1982 Rose Bowl team.
