Scouting Report/Player Notes

Ertz is an absolute mismatch at the tight end position with great quickness out of his breaks as well as great hands and the ability to make plays in the red zone. He is a consistent blocker with good length, but he’s not overly polished in this area. Doesn’t have great straight-line speed like Coby Fleener (4.5 range) but he can hold his own. One of the top returning prospects at the tight end position in the country and the leading receiver for the Cardinal through the team’s first nine games of the season. Love his production potential in red zone situations, as well as his ability to be a mismatch with linebackers over the middle of the field. He’s proven in his career that he can make linebackers look silly and he can get the ball in the end zone.
