Scouting Report: Strengths
- A coordinated athlete and tough player to tackle, running with low pad level. Has good body thickness and strength.
- Athletic able to running deep routes like a wide receiver
- Good strength and effort to run through arm tackles.
- Very good hands with a wide catch radius
- Runs crisp routes and has a full route tree
- Able to create separation with good speed
- Has been though of as just a giant receiver - but thats not the case he is an asset as a blocker
- A dominating red zone target who you uses his height (6' 5") to out jump defenders
- Soft hands. Flashes good to very good tracking and overall body control to make catches outside of his frame.
- 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.
Scouting Report: Weaknesses
- High cut frame and limited power in hands prevent a top blocking grade.
- Has decent speed but isn't explosive which may limit his game to a possession receiver
- Hasn't had great experience as a blocker - player WR in high school and so isn't instinctive
- Only average lateral agility to elude and might not be fast enough to be a consistent threat down the seam against NFL competition.
- Is a bit high-hipped and slow to get rolling. Frame limits upside as a blocker.
- Not a dominating blocker and could do with improving his strength at the point of attack
Scouting Report: SummaryWydermyer had a consistently productive college career in Texas where he put up good numbers and looks to be an excellent receiving tight end, especially over the middle on intermediate routes. He however is not a polished blocker, and does lack a little speed to be considered a high pick - is like a poor man's Kyle Pitts.
He still is likely to have a good NFL career and put up decent numbers as a mid-range threat and a red-zone specialist. He likely will squeeze into the second round of the 2022 NFL Draft
