New York Jets Draft Focus: Tight End C.J. Fiedorowicz

At 6-foot-5, 265 pounds, Fiedorowicz is a proven big-school player who thrived in the ultra-physical Big Ten Conference. He ran the 40-yard dash in 4.75 seconds at the NFL scouting combine, bench pressing 225 pounds 25 times with a 31.5-inch vertical leap and a 9-8 broad jump.

Fiedorowicz was rarely featured as a receiver in the Hawkeyes' run-oriented offense.

Fiedorowicz caught 26 passes for 253 yards and led Iowa with six touchdowns last season.

"I can show teams I'm a blocker, but I can also stretch the field," Fiedorowicz said. "I can take the top off the defense and be a dual-threat tight end. The NFL has a lot of tight ends who can only block or only be a receiver, but I was able to do both at Iowa."

Fiedorowicz displayed shown a great catch radius at the Senior Bowl and was named the Most Outstanding Receiver for the week.

Currently listed as a mid to late 3rd round prospect... Would make for a nice #2 with good growth potential to evolve into a #1 TE..
