A redshirt despite being a four-star recruit from Arizona, Andrews was primarily a wide receiver for the Sooners until he cemented the tight end spot as a senior and caught 62 passes for 958 yards and eight touchdowns (15.5-yard average per reception). Andrews caught 22 touchdowns in three seasons including career-best eight in 2017, reconnecting with former scout team cohort Baker Mayfield in his second full season as a starter. He leaves OU with a tight end-record 1,765 receiving yards.
Not a passive blocker, but Andrews needs training and refinement in a pro-style system after mostly running interference in Oklahoma's shotgun spread system. He enters the NFL as a sub-par blocker with little tape to prove his mettle in the trenches. His forte is using his frame and surprising short-area quickness to move the chains and create mismatches in the red zone. Andrews was the only tight end in the FBS with at least 800 receiving yards last season.
Injuries were a part of his story in college, but Andrews played through a shoulder injury in 2016 and battled other minor dents and dings last season. He controls type 1 diabetes after being diagnosed at age nine.
Andrews is agile and unafraid as a receiver in the open field with enough wiggle to consider splitting him wide of the formation to overwhelm defenses. He had too many inexplicable drops to go with three fumbles in 2017.
