Adam Fuehne rated at top 10 Tight End according to and rated by CBS Draft Scout as a drafted tight end had over 12 teams reach out to him and 2 top 30 visits with the Chargers and the Lions.

​​Adam Fuehne, rated at top 10 Tight End according to and rated by CBS Draft Scout as a drafted tight end, had over 12 teams reach out to him and two top 30 visits with the Chargers and the Lions. 

Adam had an exceptional pro day and is the fastest rising tight end in the draft. The Saluki hails from Damiansville, Illinois and finally had his chance to shine this year after taking over the full-time Tight End duties from last years drafted tight end, Mycole Pruitt.

"Adam Fuehne could be this year's Rodney Gunter who went in the 4th round seemingly out of nowhere, he came from a FCS program and crushed his pro day and when you put on the film, he crushes that too."

Rick Serritella, NFL Draft Bible, Founder and Analyst

Adam is projected as the 236th pick by CBS Draft Scout and is projected as a late 5th early 6th round pick by NFL Draft Bible. "When you watch him outrun the whole defense of Indiana on a 60 yard TD pass, you have to say to yourself, this kid is special," says Rick Serritella, NFL Draft Bible

Adam is possibly the second Saluki that could get drafted at the Tight End position after Mycole Pruitt was drafted in 2015. Fuehne has been described as having a “fierce blocker, who is a game changing touchdown threat at tight end around the goal line”. This was backed up by his pro day results, as all of his numbers were better than the average for players at his position who participated at the recent NFL Combine. Fuehne ran an impressive 4.98 in the 40 at 265 pounds with an astounding 31" vertical jump, 8'8 broad jump, 4.14 shuttle, and 7.17 3 cone drill.

Fuehne will have the opportunity to be drafted as an inline tight end who has the ability to run great routes and catches the ball very well. His exceptional size is a tremendous asset. “Adam has the football IQ to develop into a NFL star, he possesses unique skill sets at tight end," says David Schuman, Fuehne's agent. Adam's film speaks for itself and is on display

“Adam is the fastest rising tight end for a reason, he has the goods and is incredibly athletic for his size and has superior intelligence”, stated  agent Dave Schuman, of Inspired Athletes Agency. “His combination of talent and intangibles will make him an asset to any NFL team and it’s no surprise he is quickly rising up draft boards.”

Schuman founded Inspired Athletes, a division of his company NUC Sports with partner Dan Smith, also an NFLPA certified agent.
