Player Scouting Report

Players Scouting Reviewer : TFriedlaender . Position :Tight End [TE]

He is above average speed when it comes to TE's. He is fast enough to get on top of defense if they are caught flat footed.
Pass Catching
Has solid hands but lets the ball into his body which leads to drops or batted balls. Not very great at making catches above his head.
Route Running
His routes are mostly clean, but sometimes he can round out his breaks where he needs them to be hard cuts. I would also like to see him use his hands better to create separation.
Shows a lot of strength when running with the ball, able to break tackles. I like how he seeks contact consistently giving a strong initial hit.
Run Blocking
He makes good contact but doesn't drive his legs afterwards so the defenders slip off easily. He can also work on his head and hand placement.
He lowers his hips and goes in and out of cuts really well.
Run After Catch
He is really quick with the ball in his hands, he is able to run away from LB's. He gets a lot of screens in his offense which allow him to show his open field running ability. He also runs with good physicality.
Big Play Ability
He has the ability to get behind the defense and stretch the defense vertically.
Brevin is a really athletic TE with above average speed, and agility. You can line him up anywhere on the offense and he can be productive. He is particularly good at making plays with his legs as he runs with great agility and power, they use him a lot in the screen game as well as a lot of quick flat routes. He is a really solid route runner who goes in and out of his cuts with out losing speed, and he has soft enough hands to make catches consistently over the middle. I also like that he doesn't shy away from contact, whether he is running with the ball or blocking he likes to hit.
Brevin's biggest weakness is his blocking technique, he tends to over lean and get off balance as well as he has to position his hands more on the inside plate of the defenders shoulder pads. He also has some work with catching the ball with his hands, he can let the ball get to his body and not attack the ball, at the next level defenders will be able to jump in front of him if he is not attacking the football. He can also do a better job at making his cuts more sharp on his routes, he can round off his cuts which can lead to defenders jumping his route. And while he is really impressive after the catch, he could be better at finishing runs as sometimes he can get tripped up by a smaller defender.
Overall Analysis
Brevin has the athleticism to be an elite TE, but he is a raw prospect at this point. He needs work with his blocking technique as well as he needs to get a little bigger to be able to be an effective blocker. And he needs to work on fixing the small things in his route running and with catching the ball with his hands. His speed and natural athleticism warrants him having a 2nd round grade even with all of his flaws. But I definitely need to see more from him if he wants to be in the conversation for the 1st round.
