Kittle, an intriguing tight end prospect in 2017 NFL Draft, earns a look in this RSP Film Room episode with Jeff Risdon and Matt Waldman.
If there’s a tight end in this class whose evaluation I’m betting I’ll miss wildly, Kittle will be near the top of the list. I don’t have a strong grade for the Iowa product. His blocking and route running have gaps that could limit his role in the NFL, but I also would have liked more game exposures to base my evaluation. These are things that Jeff Risdon, managing editor for the Browns Wire and Texans Wire, also sees. However, he’s bullish on Kittle as a mid-round prospect.
Risdon presents his case for Kittle in this episode of the RSP Film Room.
