Scouting Report
Dunsmore posted remarkably consistent receiving numbers in his final three seasons at Northwestern, catching between 40 and 47 passes each year, averaging between 9.5 and 11.1 yards per catch, and hauling in between three and six touchdowns each season. That steady production came after a knee injury sidelined him for all of what would have been his sophomore season in 2008. Shoulder problems also limited Dunsmore during his career with the Wildcats, making him a potential injury risk for whichever NFL team takes a chance on him. Dunsmore enjoyed the best game of his career Oct. 29, when he caught seven passes for 112 yards and a Northwestern-record four touchdowns in a 59-38 victory at Indiana to earn Big Ten offensive player of the week honors. Not widely considered to be among the elite tight end prospects, Dunsmore surprised at the combine. He led everyone at his position with a 4.03 time in the 20-yard shuttle and a 6.73 in the 3-cone drill, while placing fifth among tight ends with a 40-yard dash time of 4.64. Those efforts may be enough to boost Dunsmore from a player who wouldn't have been drafted to a more intriguing late-round prospect. He is the son of Pat Dunsmore, a tight end who played for the Chicago Bears in 1983 and '84.
