Temple tight end Steve Maneri will meet with the Philadelphia Eagles and New York Jets this week, the 22-year-old told us during a recent podcast.
The 6’6”, 275-pound tight end caught 12 passes for 134 yards and two touchdowns in 2009. Maneri finished his four-year career at Temple with nine scores on only 38 total receptions.
One of the top-blocking tight ends in the country, Maneri is expected to be used primarily in pass protection at the next level. At 275 pounds, there is some talk of the senior bulking-up and possibly moving inside to play offensive tackle.
In addition to meeting with the Jets and Eagles, Maneri worked out for the New York Giants last week.
