11/10/2012 - Week 11 Prospects To Watch: Gavin Escobar, TE, San Diego State: On this Memorial Day weekend, any excuse I can make to highlight the brave men and women of America's Armed Forces I'll gladly take, especially considering that a 5-4 Air Force squad is taking on arguably the most underrated tight end in the country in Aztecs' junior Gavin Escobar. The 6-6, 255-pounder is the focal point of San Diego State's passing attack, leading the team with 35 receptions for 483 yards and five scores. He matched his season high with five receptions last week in San Diego State's upset over Boise State. Escobar combines his excellent size and surprising overall athleticism and good ball skills, demonstrating exactly the type of potential mismatch capabilities scouts are looking for in today's NFL. This game begins at 3:30 p.m. ET and will be televised by the NBC Sports Network. - Rob Rang, NFLDraftScout.com
