"Those Who Stay...Will be Champions"
I was watching the broadcast and I think the catch was hyped up because there weren't very many long passes completed.
It was mostly check downs with the ocassional long TD when a WR left their man in the dust. It was one of the few passes caught where a DB was nearby but didn't knock the pass down.
I like Bunting a lot but I don't see him moving up much after this or any other camp setting. AFAIK he's not ranked where he is because of a lack of size, athleticism, or catching ability. Everyone can see his potential as a pass catcher. He's ranked where he is because he has sustained injuries and not played his future position. If he is to move up as a tight end, he's going to have to do it by staying healthy, developing blocking technique, and building strength. He's similar to Funchess in this regard. Funchess came in as a borderline 3/4 star because he was a tweener.
And I guess to join the topic du jour, that catch was routine.

Nobody on this board can define the word regression.... but it sure gets used a lot.
