Biography

After selecting wide receiver Dyami Brown with its final pick Friday night, the Washington Football Team added another offensive skill player by selecting Boise State tight end John Bates.

The 6-foot-5, 250-pound Bates projects as more of a blocking tight end with immediate special teams potential, according to The Athletic's Dane Brugler. He finished his Broncos career with 47 receptions for 579 yards and a pair of touchdowns, earning honorable mention All-Mountain West twice.
