Maryland football tight end Tyler Mabry found a landing spot in the NFL, signing with the Seattle Seahawks, he announced Saturday.
Mabry graduated from Buffalo and transferred to Maryland for the 2019 season, where he tallied 13 catches, 155 yards and three touchdowns in his senior season. He was one of four Maryland players to start all 12 games in 2019.
A major upside for Mabry is he has an NFL-ready body, standing at 6’3, 250 pounds. He provides talent as a blocking a receiving tight end, and could certainly make plays at the next level.
Seattle boasts a very deep tight end room, however, so Mabry’s route to the NFL may not be easy. Greg Olsen signed with the team this offseason as it looked to add depth with Will Dissly recovering from a season-ending injury. Despite that injury, Jacob Hollister continued production from the position and is another option already on the roster.
The team drafted two tight ends as well — Stanford’s Colby Parkinson in round four and LSU’s Stephen Sullivan in round seven.
