Scouting Report
Productive receiver down the seam. Big, tall and with a long reach, he can overpower and outreach defenders. Willing blocker at all levels.

Immediate Projection
There is an opportunity for a freshman tight end, but the Buckeyes will have five tight ends on the roster with freshman eligibility. The positive for Farrell is that this is not a new position for him. It might be difficult for him to see the field given the players already on the roster, but don't count him out in 2016.
