Projection

Power-5 Starter

Measuring at 6-foot-3, 232-pounds with a 77-inch wingspan and 33 inch arms. These numbers speak for themselves to his size and overall potential from a growth standpoint. He is a very well built player with a thick sturdy frame. He moves pretty well and does a decent job being able to change direction. There is some stiffness in his hips that he needs to continue to work on with improved flexibility.
He is from a physical development standpoint ready to contribute once he arrives on a college campus.

He lines up both attached to the core as an inline tightened as well as in the slot position. He does a nice job of getting off the ball and into his route pattern from either alignment. With good body quickness and strength he has no issue getting off of press coverage. Can create separation with body position and enough burst to get away from defenders. Displays very good body control to make 50/50 catches and use his jumping ability to make contested catches. Runs all the route patterns very well and precisely. Finds the soft spots in zone coverages to be a safety net for the quarterback. Understands how to set defenders up with route depth and stemming them to give the quarterback an easy throwing lane. Possesses enough speed to create rac for chunk plays. Willing to go across the middle and make tough catches in traffic. Even though he is not asked to do it often, he is more than an adequate blocker who will put his face on an opponent and drive them off the ball.

With the evolution of the tight end position in college as well as in pro football, Lyons has a lot of the traits and skills that will allow for him to be a weapon for the offense on both levels. His football intelligence stands out with his route running, ability to get open and understanding what the defense is trying to take away in their coverages. Good overall player that gives his team 2-way snaps as a defensive end. Ultimately he should have a productive college career as a starter and all-conference player. A future in the NFL is something that I see pro him.
