Overview:

Tate finished his career at Florida State by playing in 31 career games, where he had 65 receptions, for 957 receiving yards, and 16 receiving touchdowns. He has great size, along with great speed, is sure handed, and is a solid pass catcher. He breaks tackles with ease, makes defenders miss with ease, and is tough to take down. He is also a mismatch for defensive backs due to his size, he is a solid route runner, and a good blocking receiver. He goes up and gets the ball, he fights not only for the ball, but for every yard, and extra yards, and he makes spectacular catches look easy. He is also a good deep threat, a solid redzone threat, and he consistently beats his defender. On the other hand, he missed 6 games in 2015 due to injuries. With all of that said, I expect Tate to be a early day 2 pick when it is all said and done.
