The Johnsburg, Illinois native received All-Big Ten Conference first-team honors from The NFL Draft Report and the league’s coaches. He was awarded second-team accolades from the media. Fiedorowicz finished his career with at least one reception in 31 consecutive games.
Fiedorowicz met the Texans coaching staff at this year’s Reese’s Senior Bowl and at the NFL Combine. Head coach Bill O’Brien worked him out at Iowa and the two got along well. While he considers himself a dual-threat tight end, blocking and catching, he considers blocking his strength.
Fiedorowicz followed O’Brien’s career at Penn State and New England. He models his game after the Patriots All-Pro tight end Rob Gronkowski.
“I like watching Rob Gronkowski, he’s a guy who can dominate at the line of scrimmage but also stretch the field,” Fiedorowicz said. “He’s a big, physical guy. I feel like I can really dominate in both areas and that’s who I’m going to keep pushing to be, the best. I’m not going to settle for anything.”
