Player Overview

Cajuste signed with Stanford as a highly regarded tight end prospect but emerged as one of Stanford's most reliable wide receivers since, setting career highs in 2014 with 34 catches (for 557 yards) and six touchdowns and following that up with 27 grabs for 383 yards and three more scores as a senior - second (to fellow senior Michael Rector) among Cardinal wideouts.

While Cajuste lacks the eye-popping numbers of other receivers across the country, it is important to keep in mind that Stanford's offense was built around Heisman Trophy finalist running back Christian McCaffrey, who besides rushing for 2,019 yards also led the Cardinal in both receptions (45) and receiving yards (645) in 2015.

Cajuste's combination of size and athleticism makes him a potential mismatch in the NFL.

Strengths Weaknesses

STRENGTHS: Cajuste creates separation with firm breaks on his routes and uses his height, body control and hand-eye coordination to win contested passes. Cajuste has the strength and length to control defensive backs as a blocker when he locks. He possesses very reliable hands, tracking the ball well over his shoulder and showing excellent timing and hand-eye coordination to win contested passes.

WEAKNESSES: Cajuste has some 'tweener traits that could limit his draft stock. He has been reported to have impressive speed but shows only average burst off the line and does not appear to have a legitimate second gear to pull away. His lack of speed and agility (relative to defensive backs) too often leave him scrambling to find them.

IN OUR VIEW: Cajuste does not possess the power at this time to hold up as a traditional inline blocker and may, in fact, project best as an H-back type. His greatest asset may be his strong, reliable hands.
