Zach Gentry – University of Michigan

Zach Gentry โ€“ Gentry is fairly easy to judge. He is an enormous tight end at 6โ€™8 (for context... Gronk is 6โ€™6), who runs deep middle routes very well (like basically every tight end), uses his frame to effectively shield the ball from defenders, and shows good positional awareness. He knows where the out of bounds line is and is conscious of the incoming defenders; you can see on his film that he collapses to appropriately avoid the defender coming to crack his back or the safety coming to take his head off before they arrive. This 5th sense of defender positioning allows him to quickly turn up field after the catch when open and gain a few additional yards.
