Listed by the Saints as a tight end, Je’ron Hamm comes into the league as a wide receiver (according to his profile on Nfl.com). Despite his big size (6’3″, 236) Hamm didn’t receive much attention when his days at Leesville High School in Leesville, Louisiana were over and he accepted the only offer he had from the University of Louisiana-Monroe.
After two mediocre seasons Hamm had a pretty good campaign as a junior, racking up 915 receiving yards and 6 touchdowns and was named All-Sun Belt Honorable Mention. In his time with the Warhawks (46 games) Hamm registered career totals of 111 receptions for 1,587 yards and 10 touchdowns. In his senior season he suffered an injury and was forced to miss some games.
Strengths: size is his greatest upside, good leaping ability, decent blocker, special teams experience.
Weaknesses: average hands, lacks speed to play outside.
A decent possession receiver at best, Je’ron Hamm is a sort of Marques Colston with poor hands. The Saints already have talented pass catchers on the team so I think it’s gonna be hard for him to make the roster as he would have to beat out at least Brandon Coleman and Seantavius Jones , not to mention Nick Toon and maybe Andy Tanner.
