I can already hear the groans but this selection would initially be about depth but could develop into something more. Tight end Tommy Tremble only caught 19 passes for 219 yards in his career with Notre Dame but is probably the best blocking tight end in the entire NFL draft.
It wouldn’t be the first time the Dallas Cowboys drafted a prospect purely on talent alone as the team drafted receiver Noah Brown out of Ohio state who only had 33 catches in college then again drafter Baylor basketball standout Rico Gathers who hadn’t played football since high school.
A blocking tight end in the fourth round isn’t a sexy pick but the guy isn’t your traditional blocking tight end. The six-foot-three and the 240-pound tight end has some serious juice. This blocking tight end ran a 4.59 forty-yard dash.
That is pretty unusual for a guy primarily used as a blocker. Either way, I am intrigued enough to draft the guy and possibly start him off playing an H-back role and insert him in running situations. A combination of playing tight end and filling in as a fullback could only help his cause of sticking on a team. Remember, versatility is key when churning the bottom of the roster.
