Matt Waldman’s RSP Boiler Room showcases a trio of plays where Vanderbilt tight end Jared Pinkney displays comfort with physical play—a must for NFL receivers
Al Davis said Speed Kills, but toughness is a prerequisite for football. If you can’t win the ball up the seam and deliver production under the threat of physical contact, your chances of having a long-term career as a reliable starting receiver or receiving tight end in the NFL drops significantly. In this respect, Jared Pinkney qualifies as a good NFL prospect.
Pinkney is a confident and physical receiver in the passing game who has no problem engaging in the physical give and take that’s required of the game as a blocker, route runner, pass-catcher, and ball carrier. Here are three plays where Pinkney shows that, as a pass catcher and ballcarrier, he has the goods to compete in the passing game in the NFL.
