    Default Mark Vital

    Currently residing on the practice squad as a developmental prospect at TE. These type of prospects rarely succeed in ever landing a starting role on an NFL roster, but they're nevertheless fun to speculate on. Obviously, Vital is a physical specimen with speed to match his size, but can he learn the intricacies of route running, blocking (hello Jimmy Graham), and playing special teams?
    Interesting that he decided to forego a potentially lucrative career playing professional basketball overseas. He also seems confident in his abilities as he sees himself as the next Antonio Gates (TE for the Bolts some years ago).

    Wasn't Tony Gonzalez the original basketball player to TE convert?

    Too Tall Jones changed from basketball to football halfway through college. Not a TE but a big dude.

    He did play college football at Cal, as well as basketball. The comparison to Antonio Gates was mentioned by Mark Vital himself as Gates did not play college football.

    I met him when I was a high school sophomore at a football summer camp. I can attest to his large stature.
