    RSP Film Room No. 116: TE George Kittle (Iowa)

    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.

    RSP Boiler Room No.86: TE Jeremy Sprinkle (Arkansas)

    Play intelligence from a run blocker and pass protector at the tight end position. Technique and athletic ability earn much of the focus when studying draft prospects.

  • RSP Boiler Room No.85: TE Cethan Carter (Nebraska) Suddenness & Bend

    RSP Boiler Room No.85: TE Cethan Carter (Nebraska) Suddenness & Bend

    Even the less unrefined aspects of Carter’s game should excite NFL scouts.  When he played for the Falcons, Tony Gonzalez could no longer stretch the seam or wreak havoc in the open field like he did with the Chiefs for most of his career. Even so, defenders couldn’t cover the old tight end in the […]

    Conclusions from this week of practices. As someone who studies film yearlong, the Senior Bowl has a different purpose for me than those in the media who are just getting acquainted with prospects. While I haven’t studied every player before traveling to Mobile, I’ve usually seen 85-95 percent of them. The Senior Bowl offers a […]

    It was an action-packed day for both teams.
