Ourlads' Profile:

2015 Guide: What Ourlads' NFL Scouting Services said about TYLER KROFT: Rutgers, 6054 246 4.69. Junior entry and two-year starter from Downingtown, PA. Long and quick twitch athlete with an ideal frame for the position. Runs good routes up the seam. Runs well, comfortable long strider with the speed to outrun linebackers. Soft hands, easy catching ability. Can catch the ball over the middle with defenders coming down on him. High effort player. Shows the desire to mix it up in the trenches as a run blocker. Quick release out of his three point stance. Can eat up a cushion to the safety quickly. The size combined with his speed and quickness when changing directions can make him a reliable short and intermediate receiving option for any offense. He has the leaping ability and toughness to factor over the middle. He needs to add a lot of strength before he can be relied upon as an every down threat. He is versatile enough to line up anywhere to create matchup problems. 2014 stats: 24-269, 11.2 ypr. Medical exclusion at Combine, left ankle. Fourth/fifth round. (A-33, H-9 3/8, BP-17, VJ-34).
