2018 Guide: What Ourlads' NFL Scouting Services said about DALLAS GOEDERT: South Dakota State, 6045 256 4.77. Three-year starter from Britton, SD. The fifth year senior went from red-shirt to two-time FCS All-America and 2016 finalist for the Walter Payton Award. He has evolved into arguably the top tight end prospect in this class considering his every-down impact and elite-level ball skills. With nearly 200 career catches for over 3000 yards and 21 touchdowns, he has proven to be a threat on all three levels of the passing tree and a factor in the trenches as a blocker. His eye/hand coordination along with a level of body awareness and control give him the plus advantage in traffic throws. He can outsize any defender and when the balance is there, his odds of coming down with the ball are higher than most. For such a big player, his ability to stop and go is excellent. Goedert can get into and out of breaks with sharp cuts and precision. Quick to get his head around to locate the ball and position himself. He plays the game with a physical and aggressive approach. Could use more core strength in the trenches, but the effort and want-to are there. Has also shown plenty of ability to run through arm tackles and drag tacklers downfield. Has concentration lapses here and there, dropping some easy passes as he won’t always look it in. There was certainly a man among boys feel to him at the FCS level, but his playing style and elite body control and hands could make him a big time factor in the NFL. 2018 stats: 72-1111, 15.4 ypr, 7 TD. Medical exclusion at Combine, right hamstring. First/second round. (A-34, H-10, VJ-35, SS-4.06).
