2010 NFL Draft Scouting Report: Jermaine Gresham

  • Great height and long arms
  • NFL-level strength and bulk
  • Hands catcher
  • Very athletic
  • Terror in red zone
  • Good focus when making catch
  • Tough to bring down in open field
  • Speed to stretch field vertically
  • Mismatch for linebackers
  • Great Y.A.C.
  • Knows how to settle in zone
  • Versatile; can line up in slot
  • Highly productive
  • Beats the jam at line of scrimmage
  • Wide receiver in tight end's body
  • High points the football
  • Elite level upside

  • Route running needs to be sharper in NFL
  • Not very physical in the blocking department
  • Gets too high in run blocking
  • Occasionally exposed with ball security
  • Torn ACL from high school needs to be evaluated
  • Minor durability concerns
  • Sometimes lacks great effort
  • Timed speed isn't great (4.73 reported on Oklahoma official site)

    Summary: Gresham is a first-round caliber tight end prospect and will make one team very explosive in the passing game at his position. He has the size and strength to be a better blocker, but this can be coached up in the NFL and often is. I'd like to see him fine tune his routes in his senior season.

    Player Comparison: Tony Gonzalez. I hate to compare Gresham to one of the best tight ends of all time, but I am limited because tight ends of Gresham's caliber are very rare with his size, athleticism and production.
