Pro Wells’ career was originally supposed to start out at Marshall because of the opportunity to play both football and basketball. Only playing basketball up until his senior season of high school, he gave football a try during his senior year. Having a standout season, he caught the eye of many college evaluators. After opting not to attend Marshall, he elected to go the JUCO route and later attended Northwest Mississippi Junior College. Then, he then signed with the Horned Frogs in 2018. Experiencing a breakout season in 2019, he recorded a team-high five touchdowns to go along with 196 yards on 17 receptions. Battling a hamstring injury during the early portions of his final season, Wells managed to collect 13 catches for 195 yards and a team-high three touchdown receptions. Still relatively new to the position, Wells is a big-bodied target that’s at his best when flexed out in the slot. Still needing to learn the aspects of playing in-line, he’s a viable target in the red zone, which is where most of his catch production has come.

Ideal Role: Developmental No. 3 Y tight end that hopefully can turn into a No. 2 option on the depth chart.

Scheme Fit: Air Coryell offense, Y tight end with move capabilities on the perimeter.
