Notable Headlines

Sinnott only had one offer out of high school, before opting to just go his own way as a walk on with Kansas State. Originally working as a fullback, he had plenty of field time in 2021 as a freshman. In 12 games, due to the position that he played, only managed to get 2 receptions for 15 yards. But did find the endzone with one of his 3 carries. In 2022, he continued his involvement on the field, with 14 games played. Found the endzone more in 2022, as he caught 31 passes for 447 yards and 4 TDs from 14 games. That season made him an important part if the offense, continuing that in 2023 as he continued to get usage in the offense. Finished his college career in 2023 with 49 receptions for 676 yards and 6 TDs.

Scouting Report

Positives

Sinnott has good size and strength, and can make effective blocks in the second level. With his length, he can also tie up multiple defenders. Uses his stop-start ability well to create seperation from defenders too, and can high-point a ball well too. His hands are strong, and he works well in traffic. Reliable target too, who can adjust his body quickly to bring in passes that are thrown behind him, or are too low.

Negatives

Sinnott doesn’t have top-end speed, which can hurt him when he does make a break. Doesn’t have huge size either, which could mean he struggles against bigger defensive backs in the NFL. He can also sometimes get tied up at the line of scrimmage when running routes and can’t get free from defenders.

Landing Spots

Sinnott is a versatile TE prospect, after playing time in the backfield to start college. He would work well as a TE2 in an effective offense, before taking the starting role. A team like the Chiefs, or Ravens would allow him to learn before becoming a potential starter for the teams.
