|TE - #23||88.54||TB||Active||2 years||23||6'5||262|
2015 Outlook: Sleeper (undervalued)Last updated on Dec-12-2015 by Shawn Childs
Week 14 DFS Update (12/12): In his first game back in the starting lineup Seferian-Jenkins had three catches for 31 yards on six targets while being the field for 21 plays, compared to 42 by Luke Stocker and 33 by Cameron Brate. Possible TD with more looks, but he isn't a clean ride due to competition for playing time.
In his three-year college career at Washington, Sefarian-Jenkins caught 146 passes for 1,840 yards and 21 TDs. He peaked in his junior season when he caught 69 passes for 852 yards and 7 scores. Seferian-Jenkins has excellent size (6'5" and 262 Lbs.) with solid route running skills. He'll have instant value at the goal line. He needs to improve as a blocker and he has had some off the field issues on his resume (DUI). Austin had minimal value in his rookie season (21 catches for 221 yards and two TDs). He missed seven games due to an ankle injury a back issue. Seferian-Jenkins started eight of his nine games as the Bucs viewed him as the best TE option on the team in his rookie season. His college resume points to upside and he will have plenty of space to work the middle of the field with Evans and Jackson drawing so much attention from defenses. Last year, Tampa completed 51 passes for 469 yards and one TD to the TE position. There is talent and upside here so Austin is worthy of a TE2 flier.

2015 Mock Draft Results
August 5th, 2015
|12.08||Scout Fantasy - @mattkdelima - Waited a very long time to draft a TE. This pick has more to do with my belief that Jameis Winston will break out in Year 1. If Winston does break out, ASJ is a great low TE1 option. (Comments Added Wed Aug 5 12:35:16 a.m. ET 2015)|
