05/07/2014 - 2014 NFL Draft: 126 FBS programs, 126 possible UDFAs: BYU: TE Kaneakua Friel (6-4, 254, 4.89)...With only 11 catches for 128 yards and one touchdown, Friel wasn't a substantial cog in the BYU offense in 2013, but the mini-flashes he showed were enough to catch the NFL's attention. - Dane Brugler, NFLDraftScout.com

01/14/2014 - With only 11 catches in 2013, BYU TE Kaneakua Friel (6-4, 263) has been more flash than substance over his career and those raw qualities have showed in practice. He has looked sluggish in drills and hasn't shown much burst in his breaks, lacking any type of route urgency. Friel received heavy attention from coaches on Tuesday regarding his routes and timing in drills. - Dane Brugler, NFLDraftScout.com
