Del Rio: Raiders TE Clive Walford is a 'complete tight end'

SF Gate - [Full Article]

Scouts like Clive Walford’s ability to work the middle of the field, with his quickness off the line of scrimmage and good route-running ability.

“He’s a complete tight end,” Raiders head coach Jack Del Rio said. “Are you a blocking tight end or a receiving tight end? We think he’s both.”

Fantasy Impact: 

It's difficult for a tight end to make a big fantasy impact as a rookie, especially since Walford would have to beat out Mychal Rivera, who caught 58 passes for 534 yards and four touchdowns and averaged 4.5 catches over the final 10 games. He was the #6 PPR TE in that span. One thing working in Walford's favor is that the coaching staff is new, so they have no ties to Rivera other than what they've seen on film.
