Inspired Athletes Announces Adam Fuehne, Fast Rising NFL Draft Tight End of Southern Illinois, Has On-Site Visits With Chargers and Lions

​​Adam Fuehne, one of the fastest rising draft prospects for the 2016 NFL draft, has on-site visits with the San Diego Chargers and Detroit Lions coming up. At 6-7, 256 pounds, Adam represents one of the most unique prospects in recent memory, which is why his stock is rising. Adam was the starting tight end this past year with the Salukies and was an All-Conference selection of the powerhouse Missouri Valley Conference.

Says Adam's agent David Schuman, "Adam has displayed a unique set of blocking skills, route-running and pass-catching that is separating him from the pack as a top tight end in the draft."  NFL Draft Bible Analyst Rick Serritella also chimes in, "It's a rare combination of dangerous playmaking ability around the goal line with his size and the unique ability to bury people in the run game which makes Adam so intriguing." 

"We expect Adam to get an opportunity to get drafted. To me, as a former coach and analyst, I do not see too many 6-7 tight ends that can do everything that Adam can do - the team that takes him takes a 10 year pro!"

To me, as a former coach and analyst, I do not see too many 6-7 tight ends that can do everything that Adam can do - the team that takes him takes a 10 year pro!" says Schuman.
