Tommy Tremble 2021 NFL Draft Scouting Report
Name: Tommy Tremble
College: Notre Dame
Weight: 241 lbs
Overall Rank: No. 46 overall
Position Rank: TE3
Strengths: Tough, athletic, a great blocker, and a rising pass-catcher; Tremble gives you strong George Kittle at Iowa vibes. He’s a high-potential prospect with the speed, agility, strength and three-down skills teams love. He’s a mean blocker with an attitude and aggression at the point of attack. He’ll lock out pass-rushers and is fantastic in the run game. Tremble can be used in a classic Y-tight end alignment but also works well from the backfield, wing or slot. His athleticism allows offensive coordinators to use their imagination in his usage. He’s dynamic with the ball in his hands and is a threat to produce yards-after-catch plays. With and without the ball, Tremble is tenacious.
Weaknesses: Tremble was not statistically productive at Notre Dame and was never the go-to tight end there, playing behind star recruit Michael Meyer. He experienced focus drops at times and must become more consistent there. Given his lack of reps at Notre Dame, Tremble is underdeveloped in terms of nuance at the position. He has to become a more refined route-runner to see the field as a starter.
What I Love: Rarely do you find tight ends with this level of athleticism and they’re the best blocker in the class. Tremble has All-Pro potential if he can clean up his drops and add to his route-tree.
