Ourlads' Profile:

2021 Guide: What Ourlads' NFL Scouting Services said about HUNTER LONG: Boston College, 6051 254 4.71. Junior entry, two-year starter, Exeter, NH. Earned All-ACC honors in both 2019 and 2020. Led all tight ends in the nation with 57 receptions enroute to an All-America nomination last fall. He is a tall, long, and athletic pass catcher who was the security blanket for the Boston College passing game. Quick to get his head around and will show his numbers to the passer, making him an inviting and reliable target. Still has a lot of physical development to undergo, as he needs to add bulk and power to his lower body to enhance his stability when it comes to lateral movement. He was not relied on to block inline often but he needs to improve his strength overall. Can create mismatches in the passing game. That size, vertical speed, and ability to do the little things right will be a great place to start. Long and lean frame with plenty of room to add muscle mass. A big and friendly target that shows urgency out of his breaks. Will come back to the ball with his hands up and in front. Has straight line speed to get up the seam and shows the ability to stop on a dime and come back to the ball. Excels with straight line movement. Effort and reach are there as a blocker. Will use his athleticism to stick to his man. Shows some awkward and unbalanced movement when moving laterally. Telegraphs his routes. Will need time to develop his power and stability, notably in his lower half. Doesn’t get movement as a blocker. Spontaneous, reaction-based burst and leaping ability is limited. 2020 stats: 5-685, 12.0 ypr, 5 TD. Fourth/fifth round. (A-33 3/4, H-9 3/4, VJ-32.5, SS-4.42).
