Stephen Sullivan, TE, LSU (233)

In this mock draft, Stephen Sullivan fell to the seventh round. Some have him going higher, and some have him going undrafted. The kid is a winner, and we know that for sure. Listed at 6’5 248 pounds he has the size to play tight end on paper.

He does, however, have skinny legs. He looks more like a big receiver, much like Devin Funchess, who went from tight end to WR. I wouldn’t plan on that for Sullivan, but with two substantial contracts at the tight end position and one aging veteran. The Chicago bears would be wise to bring Sullivan in to compete.

Sullivan should be coming into camp with a chip on his shoulder for being drafted late and have a winners mentality after last year’s season. As a pass-catcher, he is about as fast as Allen Robinson but much bigger. If Sullivan fills out the bottom half of his body, he would be a solid choice at the “Y” position.

With the addition of both Claypool and Sullivan, the team can finally move on from Adam Shaheen and Ben Braunecker. Releasing them would still leave plenty of bodies to compete for the starting role in August. If Sullivan were to beat out some guys, the tight end room could look like Graham, Burton, Harris, Sullivan, and one or two others.
