The media tends to fall in love with a versatile tight end/fullback in the NFL Draft every year.

Wesco is not the traditional stature for a receiving-first tight end in the pros, standing at 6-foot-3 and 267 pounds. He only played one season at West Virginia, finishing his senior year with 26 receptions for 366 yards.

Back then, general manager Mike Maccagnan and head coach Adam Gase preferred Wesco to Chris Herndon as their primary blocking tight end. Sadly, that dream didn’t last long.

Wesco has been offensively ineffective for the past two seasons, to put it simply. The former Mountaineer has three receptions for 52 yards and two carries for two yards in 28 games (five starts).

He has contributed on special teams as well, with two tackles and recovering a fumble.

The Maccagnan drafts weren’t famed for their mid-round selections, though. Let alone Joe Douglas coming in and wanting to clear house, they won’t even be able to complete their rookie contracts.

Wesco still has an opportunity to drastically alter his story despite his dismal performance thus far.
