Draft Scout News
09/01/17 - TE Bucky Hodges suffered a concussion in the preseason finale. He's an interesting prospect who essentially played receiver in college.
He probably will make the team as the Vikings look for ways to take advantage of his size and receiving skills while working on his raw blocking.
03/17/17 - Virginia Tech Pro day: After setting a Combine record (among tight ends) with an 11-2 broad jump, leading all players at the position with a 39-inch vertical and recording a 4.57 time in the 40-yard dash at 6-6, 257 pounds, tight end Bucky Hodges opted to sit on his measureable numbers Wednesday, though he did show power and aggression in blocking drills, according to a scout on the scene, and caught the ball well. Receiver Isaiah Ford shaved a tenth of a second off of his disappointing Combine 40-yard dash time (4.61) and also caught the ball well. Hodges and Ford rank sixth and 15th, respectively, among their position groups. - Rob Rang, NFLDraftScout.com
