He has four season with 40 or more receptions and three 500-yard seasons. Scheffler has big-play ability at the tight end position. He is a great athlete with good speed and the ability to make plays after the catch. Scheffler is a tough cover over the middle as evident by his career 12.4 yards per reception average.
