Eagles All-22 Movie Evaluation: Grant Calcaterra may turn out to be a helpful function participant

With the 2022 NFL Draft over, it is time for some movie rooms on this 12 months’s rookie class. I’ll try to get to all of the gamers and a few UDFAs over the subsequent few weeks. There are clearly 1,000,000 scouting profiles on the market so that is simply my opinion however I’ve tried to backup mainly every part I’ve stated with movie clips. That is the ultimate one for a drafted participant this 12 months, thanks for trying out these articles the previous few weeks! In case you have any concepts for articles over the rest of the offseason, be happy to remark beneath or tweet me. (Beforehand: Jordan Davis and Cam Jurgens and Nakobe Dean and Kyron Johnson.)

OVERALL

Nicely… this was a enjoyable one to put in writing. I clearly did not have big expectations contemplating Grant Calcaterra was a 6th spherical tight finish, however the movie is definitely fairly enjoyable! The Eagles appear to be taking pictures for prime upside guys within the late spherical and in free company this 12 months and I’m on board. Everyone knows the medical historical past and who is aware of how lengthy he performs within the league, however I might slightly take an opportunity on a excessive upside man than all the time taking a strong particular teamer who cannot do a let else.

The newest movie will not be that good if we’re being trustworthy. The concussions have clearly taken a toll on him as a participant and there’s completely no assure that he’ll ever be pretty much as good as he as soon as was. The movie underneath Kyler Murray is fairly spectacular although. Clearly, it helps enjoying with an distinctive faculty quarterback, however he appeared like a official weapon who may play the function of a ‘large slot’ or cut up tight finish. He has some good fairly reps on movie.

He was persistently requested to play the ‘X’ place and faculty coaches wouldn’t ask a decent finish to try this except they thought he had the power to separate and win towards cornerbacks. You noticed that he had good physique management and the power to go up and get it within the redzone. He’s additionally fairly quick and can fancy his probabilities his towards linebackers if you will get him lined up on them.

He’s an honest and keen blocker, however I do not suppose he’ll ever be an inline blocker on the subsequent stage. If he has an opportunity to make it, he must be an enormous slot model tight who is especially a receiver. I do not suppose he’ll ever be a beginning tight finish (which is okay for a 6th spherical choose) however I believe he has an honest shot of turning into a helpful function participant who could make a couple of catches right here and there and contribute within the crimson zone.

I don’t know what his function on particular groups can be, however I believe he could have an honest shot to make the roster. Jack Stoll is way more of a blocking tight finish, so I do not suppose he’s in direct competitors with him. Tyree Jackson is not going to be wholesome at first of the season, attributable to a torn ACL in January, so he is not going to be competing with him both. I believe he can be competing with Richard Rodgers and JJ Arcega-Whiteside and I believe if he reveals some upside in the summertime, he ought to make the roster of those.

General, I believe all fashionable NFL groups ought to merely purchase as many various ability gamers as potential who can create matchup points. Including one other potential part-time weapon within the 6th spherical may change into an incredible choose if his concussion points don’t trigger any long-term issues.
