Gerald Everett NFL Draft Profile
Gerald Everett-TE-South Alabama
Size: 6’3 239lbs
- Decent speed for position
- Creates separation
- Long arms
- Solid in blocking game
- Decent hands
Analysis: Gerald Everett has easy acceleration into routes and can blow by safeties who sit down looking for a route break for too long. Good acceleration off of plant foot in route breaks. Can create immediate separation. Carries play speed throughout routes. Cover linebackers are usually in for a rough day vs. Everett, who eats in the middle of the field and shows no fear. Maximizes arm length for wide catch radius. Hands look fairly natural as pass catcher. Adds to totals with yards after catch. Runs physically and with excellent balance. Rips his legs through arm-tackle attempts. Instinctive runner who sets up blocks on bubble screens. Able to work all three levels of the field. Blocks with anger and is prone to longer engagements than most blockers on perimeter.
- Route running
- Small hands
- TD production is lacking
Analysis: Gerald Everett has two weaknesses to his game. Route running and small hands. It’s fair to say route running doesn’t appear to be high on his priority list. His routes are rounded, dull and lack urgency. Leans into most of his breaks. Talented cover safeties can jump his routes. Drifts on square-ins, allowing deep safeties a door into the play. Needs work on double moves. Could have issues playing through route redirection off line of scrimmage. Shows deceleration when locating ball on deep throws. Hands are small. Touchdown production lower than expected for a guy his size.
