Shaheen was highly productive at Ashland, where he played in 32 games, had 129 receptions, for 1755 receiving yards, and 26 receiving touchdowns. He has great size, he has good speed, he is also a solid pass catcher, he is a good blocking tight end, and he is sure handed. He also opens holes up for his back, he is a good pass blocker, he is a good run blocker, he is also a good deep threat, he is a good redzone threat, and he is a mismatch for defenders. He is also an offensive play maker, he also consistently beats his defender, he also breaks tackles with ease, and he is a good route runner. The only negative is that he played for such a lower level school, that may be seen as a negative. With that said, I see Shaheen being a day 2 pick, likely somewhere in the 3rd round area when it is all said and done.
