Draft Scout Niles Paul News
09/15/14 - TE Niles Paul established career-highs in catches and yards in each of the two games. The former Nebraska receiver, who former coach Mike Shanahan switched to tight end in 2012, leads Washington with 12 catches for 185 yards. Only three NFC tight ends have more catches and only New Orleans star Jimmy Graham has more yards.
"Jordan Reed's the guy as far as I know," said Paul, who had just 14 catches for 228 yards in his three previous seasons. "When he comes back, I don't know. It could be this week, it could be next week. I just take on the role that comes as the coaches give them to me."
Paul lost a fumble as he was heading to the goal line on a long catch in the 17-6 loss at Houston, but against Jacksonville, he made a gorgeous leaping grab of a pass from quarterback Kirk Cousins in the end zone to extend Washington's margin to 31-7 early in the fourth quarter.
Said Paul, "We knew they were going to put a linebacker out there, which obviously would be a mismatch, and Kirk gave me an opportunity to make a play."
