Orson Charles, TE, Georgia

Charles has made consistent contributions and impressive progress in three years at Georgia. The tight end caught 23 passes for 374 yards and three touchdowns in his first season, garnering First-Team Freshman All-American honors from multiple publications. He hauled in 26 passes for 422 yards and two scores as a sophomore, while being named a Second Team All-SEC performer by the conference's coaches. Charles is in the midst of his best campaign as a Bulldog right now. Through nine games he has 32 receptions for 395 yards and five touchdowns as the 'Dawgs appear headed to the SEC Championship.

The Tampa, FL native has good but not great size at 6'3'' and 241 pounds. He generally runs around a 4.6 in the 40-yard dash and he has been clocked as fast as 4.54 from that distance. Charles is a great red-zone target and his speed can create mismatches with opposing linebackers. Other attributes include soft hands and durability. His relative lack of size can be an issue and he has to improve his blocking as he prepares for the next level. If Charles goes pro, he could be a second or third-round selection in the 2012 NFL Draft.

Prediction: 1st Round

His floor is TE Aaron Hernadez; his ceiling is HOF Shannon Sharpe! Makes sense in the late 2nd round to the Steelers.

I've met him before. His muscles are about as thick as my head.
