Eagles All-22 Movie Overview: Grant Calcaterra may turn into 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 attempt to get to all of the gamers and a few UDFAs over the following few weeks. There are clearly one million scouting profiles on the market so that is simply my opinion however I’ve tried to backup principally all the pieces I’ve stated with movie clips. That is the ultimate one for a drafted participant this 12 months, thanks for testing these articles the previous few weeks! When you have any concepts for articles over the rest of the offseason, be at liberty to remark beneath or tweet me. (Beforehand: Jordan Davis and Cam Jurgens and Nakobe Dean and Kyron Johnson.)

STRENGTHS

+ Good measurement and really fluid athlete. Fairly fast in a straight line and fluid on in/out breaking routes

+ Can discover area towards zone protection

+ Good physique management and has the flexibility to excessive level the soccer and make robust catches

+ An actual risk within the redzone, particularly on fade routes

+ Can create matchup issues as a ‘massive slot’

+ Has the flexibility to stretch the seam and get excessive

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

WEAKNESSES

– Not one of the best arms. Catches together with his physique his and never his arms his an excessive amount of which causes him issues on the catch level

– Most likely by no means going to be a standard inline tight finish as a result of his lack of energy when blocking

– Sluggish coming again to the ball which implies 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 drawback and an enormous cause why he fell to the sixth

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 top 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 quite take an opportunity on a excessive upside man than all the time taking a stable particular teamer who cannot do a let else.

The newest movie is just not that good if we’re being trustworthy. The concussions have clearly taken a toll on him as a participant and there may be 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 authentic weapon who may play the function of a ‘massive slot’ or cut up tight finish. He has some good fairly reps on movie.

He was persistently requested to play the ‘X’ place and school coaches wouldn’t ask a good finish to do this until they thought he had the flexibility to separate and win towards 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 towards linebackers if you may get him lined up on them.

He’s a good and prepared blocker, however I do not assume 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 principally a receiver. I do not assume he’ll ever be a beginning tight finish (which is ok for a 6th spherical decide) however I feel he has a good shot of changing into a helpful function participant who could make a number of catches right here and there and contribute within the purple zone.

I don’t know what his function on particular groups can be, however I feel he may have a good shot to make the roster. Jack Stoll is far 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, as a result of a torn ACL in January, so he won’t be competing with him both. I feel he can be competing with Richard Rodgers and JJ Arcega-Whiteside and I feel if he exhibits some upside in the summertime, he ought to make the roster of those.

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