Draft Profile: Bio
Gavin Bartholomew from Blue Mountain High School was rated a 3-star recruit by ESPN and handed a 3-star grade by 247 Sports. After high school, Bartholomew opted to join Pittsburgh.

In 2021 as a freshman Bartholomew saw action in 14 games for the Panthers as he made 28 receptions for 326 yards for an average of 11.6 yards per reception, with 4 TDs, and an elite QB rating when targeted of 153.1. As a blocker he allowed 2 pressures and no sacks.

As a sophomore in 2022 he played 12 games and had 20 catches for 284 yards for an average of 14.2 yards per catch, with 2 TDs, and QB rating when targeted of 99.0. In pass protection he gave up 2 pressures and no sacks.

As a junior in 2023 he played 10 games and hauled in 18 catches for 326 yards for an average of 18.1 yards per catch, with one TD, and an elite QB rating when targeted of 120.3. As a pass blocker he gave up 2 pressures and no sacks.
Scouting Report: Strengths
  • Bartholomew fights his way off the line of scrimmage against press coverage, showing quick, violent hands and good balance.
  • Catches well in traffic, shields the ball from defenders with his frame, and holds on despite being hit. Will fully extend, snatch, and stay in bounds.
  • Has hands of glue, about as good as you 'll see in the sport.
  • Good effort at the point of attack and second level as a blocker. Intelligent and will quickly acclimate to an NFL offense.
  • Good body control to reach back for the pass behind him. High-points passes and has good vertical, timing and hand-eye coordination in jump-ball situations.
  • He’s lanky and long-armed, but Bartholomew has the broad-shouldered frame to carry more weight. Bartholomew was a national high-jump champion in high school, and that athleticism translates to the passing game.
Scouting Report: Weaknesses
  • Inconsistent with his release off the line of scrimmage.
  • Bartholomew lacks the twitch to create consistent separation, and despite his size and ability to track the ball downfield, Bartholomew isn’t great on contested catches.
  • He’ll give enough effort to get in the way, but because he doesn’t get any push in the run game, he won’t be used in-line early in his career.

*Percentile Ranking in Player's Position Group (NFL Combine Historical Data): This percentile reflects how a player's specific statistics rank in comparison to historical performances at the NFL Combine, specifically within their position group. A higher percentile indicates a better performance. For instance, being in the 90th percentile for a particular stat means the player outperformed 90% of their peers in that category.

*Similarity Percentage: This percentage is calculated based on a comprehensive analysis of various factors, including height, weight, 40-yard dash times, on-field performance statistics, and overall player rating. The analysis is conducted against our database of draft prospects from 2021 to 2023. This similarity score helps in evaluating how closely a current prospect aligns with past prospects. It is important to note, however, that this score reflects similarities based on college production and attributes, and does not account for eventual success or performance in the NFL.
