year round NFL draft coverage... for the real fan

Orson Charles scouting report

Orson Charles TE Georgia #7
Ht: 6’3″

Wt: 242

Quick off the snap. Does a nice job fighting through press coverage; quick enough to shake more physical linebackers in coverage. Reliable hands; can make the tough catch in traffic. Does a really nice job staying low and using good leverage on his blocks. Plenty of experience against top competition; three year starter.
Lacks the strength to excel as a blocker; will get desperate and hold when he starts to lose control of a block. Somewhat reckless running with the football; needs to do a better job securing the football and staying low and driving his legs to fight through tackles. More quick than fast; can shake free in tight spaces but won’t be a threat to consistently stretch the field at the next level.
Charles has the skills to be effective at the next level, but doesn’t stand out in any one area which limits his upside. He is a reliable receiver, but may lack the height to truly be a difference maker in that area of the game. There are relatively few pass-catching tight ends listed at 6’3″ or shorter, and Charles lacks the blocking skills to make up for what he lacks as a receiver. He should be a solid backup, and could be a nice 3rd or 4th round luxury pick for a team in need of another weapon, but he likely will never be a feared pass catcher.
