2022 Guide: What Ourlads’ NFL Scouting Services said about TY FRYFOGLE:
Indiana, 6011 204 4.49. Three-year starter, Lucedale, MS. Third-team All-America in 2020. A possession receiver who shows little fear of taking shots when catching the ball in traffic. Effective and consistent use of body positioning at catch point coupled with sure hands adds value to this prospect. A deceptive gait, long strider who lacks top end speed. Had a productivity drop in his last season. Struggles to create separation from defenders using speed, quickness and explosion, however he is good at getting his body in position to be a contributing receiver target. Has a tremendous catch radius. A high percentage of his catches were contested. Shows understanding of attacking defender’s leverage and blind spots. Plays at one tempo. Lacks top end acceleration, explosion and long speed. Solid technician in transition, almost seems to over-exaggerate the fundamentals in transition. Wins a ton of hand combat situations at the top of the route. Puts defenders on his hip. What he lacks in speed he makes up for with technique and physicality. A savvy route runner. Uses field spacing, leverage and angles to his advantage. Has long build-up speed to make him a threat to get vertical. Attacks the catch point fearlessly. Wins the high point using size, strength and physicality. A rhythm-based route runner. Understands how to mirror releases on a varied route tree. Will give up at times as a blocker. His lack of speed can hinder his value as much as his ball skills can increase it for the right team.
