Strengths Weaknesses

STRENGTHS: Excellent initial burst off the line to get vertical in a hurry with long, full strides, flashing flexible and easy movement skills rare for a player his size. Funchess tracks well with smooth body control to make natural adjustments on the ball.

WEAKNESSES: WAY too many drops on his resume and needs to improve his reliability and finishing ability through the catch point. The effort is there for him as a blocker, but his technique needs work as he's often caught off guard with his blocking assignments.

Funchess is a mismatch nightmare against linebackers and smaller defensive backs and with improved consistency, he has all the makings of a future first-round pick, reminiscent of a younger Jermichael Finley at Texas.

--Dane Brugler (8/4/14)

Player Overview

A player just scratching the surface of his potential, Funchess is an impressive athlete and is the Wolverines' top offensive playmaker with Jeremy Gallon now in the NFL. Funchess, who is in the WR/TE hybrid mold with a tall, workable frame and lean muscle tone, lined up at both receiver and tight end as a freshman and sophomore, but is expected to be a full-time wideout in 2014.
