Eagles All-22 Movie Overview: Grant Calcaterra may change into a helpful function participant

With the 2022 NFL Draft over, it is time for some movie rooms on this yr’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 one million scouting profiles on the market so that is simply my opinion however I’ve tried to backup mainly every little thing I’ve mentioned with movie clips. That is the ultimate one for a drafted participant this yr, thanks for testing these articles the previous few weeks! If 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.)

+ Has the flexibility to stretch the seam and get excessive

+ A keen blocker, each in go safety and as a run blocker

WEAKNESSES

– Not the most effective arms. Catches along with his physique his and never his arms his an excessive amount of which causes him issues on the catch level

– In all probability by no means going to be a conventional inline tight finish because of his lack of energy when blocking

– Gradual coming again to the ball which suggests he has to push off so much and will get known as for go interference an excessive amount of

– The concussions are clearly an enormous downside and a giant motive why he fell to the sixth

OVERALL

Effectively… this was a enjoyable one to write down. I clearly did not have large expectations contemplating Grant Calcaterra was a 6th spherical tight finish, however the movie is definitely fairly enjoyable! The Eagles appear to be capturing for prime upside guys within the late spherical and in free company this yr 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 moderately 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 isn’t 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 nearly as good as he as soon as was. The movie below Kyler Murray is fairly spectacular although. Clearly, it helps taking part in with an distinctive school quarterback, however he appeared like a legit weapon who may play the function of a ‘massive slot’ or break up tight finish. He has some good fairly reps on movie.

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

He’s a good and keen blocker, however I do not assume he’ll ever be an inline blocker on the subsequent degree. If he has an opportunity to make it, he should be a giant slot model tight who is principally a receiver. I do not assume he’ll ever be a beginning tight finish (which is ok for a 6th spherical choose) however I believe he has a good shot of changing into a helpful function participant who could make a couple of catches right here and there and contribute within the pink zone.

I don’t know what his function on particular groups shall be, however I believe he can have a good shot to make the roster. Jack Stoll is way more of a blocking tight finish, so I do not assume he’s in direct competitors with him. Tyree Jackson won’t be wholesome at first of the season, because of a torn ACL in January, so he won’t be competing with him both. I believe he shall 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.

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