06/21/2012 - Top-five Virginia prospects for the 2013 NFL Draft: 3. TE Colter Phillips (6-6, 245)...If players were drafted based on collegiate production, Phillips would be lucky to get a try-out in the NFL. With only 26 catches entering his senior season, he has as many career receptions as he does starts for Virginia. Phillips was a top-40 tight end recruit out of high school and chose Virginia over Stanford and Wake Forest. After redshirting in 2008, he started 16 games over his first two seasons, combining for 23 catches and three scores. Phillips battled a foot injury last season as a junior and started nine games, but recorded just three receptions. Phillips comes from a football family as his older brother (Andrew) was an All-Conference lineman at Stanford and his younger brother (Paul) is currently a sophomore tight end at Indiana. Colter needs to stay healthy, but moves well for his size and has the skill-set to have a break-out 2012 campaign. Virginia has had three tight ends drafted since 2005, including Heath Miller who was taken in the first round by the Pittsburgh Steelers. While Phillips is a long-shot to go in the top-32 picks, he could warrant a draft pick with a healthy senior season. - Dane Brugler, NFLDraftScout.com
