Tremble made his name as a run blocker for the Irish, most notably earning the number one blocking grade amongst all FBS tight ends according to Pro Football Focus.
Tommy Tremble started 2020 as a key part of the Notre Dame passing attack. In his first two games, he caught eight passes for 104 yards. Over his next eight games, he would catch a total of 11 passes for 114 yards.
NFL teams will love this about him in the draft process. He possesses a natural talent that easily can translate to the NFL level despite serving as mostly a backup TE at Notre Dame.
- Can effectively place a block on a pass rusher before starting route by sinking fluid hips and delivering a punch.
- A lean athlete with obvious upside. Soft hands. Flashes the ability to make the outstanding catch.
- Tremble wasn’t relied on heavily in this area, with only 19 receptions on the season. He certainly has the speed to stretch a defense with his reported 4.63 speed.
- Looks to get involved downfield and will block multiple defenders on a single play when he can. Understands his role as a blocker.
- Lacks size and has a lean build, short stature and average length.
- A glider, moves faster than he appears but lacks the top-end speed to be a real threat down the seam.
- Struggles tracking the ball over his shoulder.
- Inconsistent with his release off the line of scrimmage.
- Tight hips, limited long speed and isn't naturally explosive. Not an in-line blocker with a weak base.
Tremble has shown enough to be worth a fourth round pick in the Draft and can be a productive player if he ends up in the right offense.
