Draft Scouting Report

Draft Scouting Report:

Rating: 89.52 (Long-term starter)

Pro Comparison: Jason Witten


Michael Mayer is a consistent performer who does a great job of making contested catches out of his frame. He lacks top-end athleticism and struggles to create separation as a result. Mayer is solid as a run blocker and in pass protection. He turns upfield quickly but does not have the breakaway speed to churn yards after the catch. Mayer is a bear for a defensive back to bring down in open space.


  • Consistent producer dating back to his freshman season
  • Great size to make contested catches and sustain blocks
  • No wasted movement
  • Blocks with good leverage and drives his feet on contact in the run game
  • Soft hands to snatch passes away from his frame


  • Average-to-below average quickness and athleticism
  • Can get off the ball faster
  • Does not create much separation
  • Turns upfield quicky post-catch but does not have breakaway speed

Combine Results:

  • 40-Yard Dash: 4.7 seconds
  • Vertical: 32.5 inches
  • Broad Jump: 9 feet, 10 inches
