Overview:

Hikutini had a nice career at Louisville, where he played in 33 games, had 90 catches, for 1220 receiving yards, and 16 receiving touchdowns. He has great size, he is also a solid pass catching tight end, he is a good blocking tight end, he runs good routes, and he is very experienced. He opens holes for his backs, he is a good run blocker, and he is a good pass blocker. On the other hand, he does not have elite speed but that does not hurt his game, and he had a shoulder injury while at Louisville. With that said, I see Hikutini as a day 3 pick, likely in the 5th-6th round range when it is all said and done.
