2015 TE Prospect Grades (FINAL)

Notes on our current TE prospect grades and rankings...

 -- It's only speculation that it might work switching him to a TE/WR hybrid, but Darren Waller is our top graded prospect for the 2015 NFL Draft at Tight End. We think he's an intriguing, underrated athlete, but also consider that this is a pretty weak TE class.

 -- I could see Clive Walford being a better NFL player than our grades indicate. He might not pour on big stats, but he he's just a really solid player all-around. 

 -- The sleeper of the group is Old Dominion TE Richard Ross, the former basketball player. He has a lot of the frame and look of a TE, but needs to add more strength and gain experience, obviously. His full scouting report is posted on CFM.

 

*A score of 7.0+ is where we start to take a TE prospect more seriously. A score of 8.50+ is where we see a stronger correlation of TEs going on to become NFL good/great/elite. A score of 10.00+ is more rarefied air in our system, and indicates a greater probability of becoming an elite NFL TE.

All of the TE ratings are based on a 0-10 scale, but a player can score negative, or above a 10.0 in certain instances.

"Speed-Agility Metric" = A combination of unique metrics surrounding speed, agility, physical size, mixed with some on-field performance metrics. High scorers here project to have a better YAC, and show characteristics to be used as deep threats/create separation.

"Power-Strength Metric" = A combination of unique metrics surrounding physical-size profiling, bench press strength, etc.  High scorers here project to be more physical, better blockers, and less injury-prone.

"Hands Metric" = A combination of unique metrics surrounding on-field performance in college, considering the strength of opponents played. Furthermore, this data considers some physical profiling for hand-size, etc. High scorers here have a better track record of college statistical performance, and project the combination of data for receiving success at the next-level.

"Red Zone Metric" = A combination of unique metrics surrounding on-field performance in college, and a physical profiling of successful red-zone TEs in the NFL. An attempt to measure the TD/end-zone threat/productivity a TE could have in the NFL.
