Jeremy Sprinkle

Strengths:

  • Run blocker
  • Pass protection
  • Size, length
  • Provides large target to QB
  • Body control
  • High-points ball

Analysis: In this year’s deep draft, Jeremy Sprinkle along with Jake Butt are the true blocking tight ends who can also make an impact in the passing game. He has the arm length and base to help in pass protection. Effective blocker willing to do the physical work. Snaps into down blocks and secures. Strong hands lead to sustained blocks. Able to engage and sustain against safeties in space. Long frame with room to carry more weight. Has arm length and hand size of an NFL offensive tackle. Big, presentable target over the middle. Plus red-zone worker. Sells blocks on delayed-release play-action. Uses height, arm length, and high-point technique to go way up the ladder and over top of defenders. Nasty stiff-arm after catch. Above-average body control for size.

Weaknesses:

  • Could add some functional strength
  • Won’t outrun defenders
  • Below-average route running
  • YAC
  • Hand placement

Analysis: Sprinkle will need to dedicate himself to the gym,  as he needs more work on arm day. His upper-body thickness hasn’t caught up with frame yet. Feet are a bit heavy out of release and into routes. Legs and arms flail away into some of his breaks. Below-average at utilizing route leverage to create additional throwing room for quarterbacks. Lacks short-area quickness to make defenders miss after catch. Needs to work back to ball more often. Hand placement is average.

NFL Comparison: Anthony Fasano

Draft Projection: Round 5
