Ourlads' Profile:

2013 Guide: What Ourlads' NFL Scouting Services said about ZACH ERTZ: Stanford, 6050 249 4.76. Junior entry. One of two or three tight ends that rotated over the past three years. A polished pro prospect who is a scrappy effort blocker averaging 13 yards per catch. A sure handed catcher who runs fluid and sharp routes. Effective blocker on the move. Makes the tough over shoulder catch, tracking the ball into his hands. Plucks the ball at the high point. Athletic enough to win the one-on-one matchups. Runs hard after catch. Needs to stick and stay longer on his blocks. Good initially but could finish better. Plays faster than timed speed. Has the frame to carry another 15 pounds of good weight. The bulk may help him as an inline blocker. No holdup on the line of scrimmage. Plays in a three point or two point stance with a good base. He doesn’t get knocked off his pattern. Comes off hard every play. Creates space vertically or horizontally. Finds the open area in zone coverage and sits down facing the quarterback. Good feel for underneath game. Good ball concentration. Catches the ball in traffic. Good field awareness. Probable first year starter with minimal developmental time. 2012 stats: 69-898, 13.0 ypr, 6 TD. OSR:8/ 19. Second/third round. (A-31 3/4, H-9 3/4, BP-24, VJ-30.5).
