Scouting Report: Strengths
  • Eichenberg can be used as a rangy run defender inside, instinctive when it comes to locating the ball with the quickness to get to it before blockers can react at the second level.
  • He’s rangy and instinctive when he’s looking into the backfield as a zone defender.
  • Has a filled-out frame with good thickness. Plays at full speed at all times with an active motor and determined quickness in pursuit.
  • He has good quickness and an excellent understanding of angles, often beating blockers to the spot.
  • He chases well in pursuit, and Eichenberg has the athleticism to play in space if asked to drop into coverage.
  • Has the combination of size and athleticism worthy of development.
  • Eichenberg has the fluid movement skills and speed to turn and run in coverage against tight ends.
Scouting Report: Weaknesses
  • He’s more of a grab-and-drag tackler who could stand to be more violent as a hitter.
  • As a pass rusher, Eichenberg needs the scheme to create deception and confusion to give him a free run.
  • Eichenberg is in a hurry to get upfield but shows poor instincts when locating the ball against the run.

*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.
