2021 NFL Draft Prospect: Sean Dykes, TE, University of Memphis

Sean Dykes Memphis Draft Diamonds
University of Memphis tight end Sean Dykes has been a beast in 2020. He is flying up my draft board. I like the kid, he has talent.

There is a sleeper tight end prospect at the University of Memphis. His name is Sean Dykes and he is playing some big boy football right now. The 6’2, 230 pounds tight end/H-back from Memphis has been impressive.

Dykes has played in 40 games and made 16 starts. Over his career he had 33 receptions for 588 touchdowns and five touchdowns before entering his senior year.


This year, Dykes has been impressive. He has 32 receptions alone for 435 yards and has scored one more touchdown than he did in his previous four years (6).

This year Dykes has been averaging 72.5 yards and has 13.6 yards per catch. Dykes reminds me a lot of Jordan Reed, both are athletic pass catchers with great hands and quickness.

Not many teams use an H-back type of player anymore, but Dykes elusiveness and playmaking ability has been impressive this year. I think a team like the Packers would have interest in Dykes.

NFL Draft Diamonds Scouting Notes

Sean Dykes has already outperformed his entire career stats his senior year. He is having a great season for the Tigers. Dykes is not the biggest guy, but he is elusive and has soft hands. He has grown on me as a prospect. I watched the game of him against South Florida and he looked like former South Florida prospect Sean Price. Dykes tore up the USF team hauling in 7 receptions for 147 yards and scored twice. He looked impressive. – Damond Talbot, NFL Draft Diamonds, Owner
