Peshek: TE Metrics

Recommended Posts

This tight end class boasts a number of extremely productive players which makes analysis of their receiving targets very interesting. However, each player examined here was successful in a unique way which is what actually makes them worth analyzing. In this piece, I broke them down only by their receiving targets but added in a few metrics that would separate this from past wide receiver columns.

All the targets were hand charted by me from every game of these players. If you’re missing your favorite TE such as C.J. Fiedorowicz or Xavier Grimble - it’s because their receptions were so limited that a good sample size wasn’t possible. In the piece, Austin Seferian-Jenkins will be referred to in the charts as ASJ.

ASJ looks like like he lined up all over the field while having the lowest drop rate. That said his yac isnt good. Surprised by ebrons drop rate wow.

That's cool he highlights Richard Rogers.  I think he could be a great mid/late round TE pick.  Hell, his dad is one of our coaches and he is athletic as hell.

we need to be looking more at the traditional TEs more than the oversized WR guy...not because we don't need that, but because that's more than likely what we will be picking up as a TE as a replacement and eventual upgrade from hartsock (who i think we bring back for another year).

 

i do think that the TE that we draft will be a respectable pass catcher, but his main strength is blocking.

 

of that list, ASJ is the best choice. i like ebron and amaro and think they'd be awesome targets for cam, but we need more blocking help.

 

i'll be waiting for the second group of TEs just to see how cj fiedorowicz does.

 

as much as i would like either ebron (who will probably be gone early) and amaro (who seems is destined to be a pat) i think really that any of the next 5-6 TEs available might be a better fit and value for the panthers and would allow us to invest in other bigger needs earlier (like OT/WR/DB).

 

fwiw, here's my top choices (probably no surprises)...

ASJ

niklas

cj fiedorwicz

arthur lynch

crockett gillmore

joe don duncan

marcel jensen

 

 

i know a lot of people like rodgers, but i just don't see him as being the strong blocker that we lean towards.

^ ASJ, IMHO would have more immediate and long term impact as a blocker and pass catcher for us than any player in the entire draft. I just hope so much the current mocks are right that no team in the first 27 falls in love with his freakishness and takes before we have a chance. I also hope so much the current mocks are wrong that he gets past 28.

The sleeper in this draft will be Lyerla. He'll go undrafted but he'll get picked up by Chip Kelly and be the next Jimmy Graham.

or he'll wind up out of the league and/or in jail.

^Sadly, probably the latter. Cocaine is more than a small, immature, no big deal, "everybody does it" off the field issue.

drinking and smoking pot....not ideal, but it's something that we can deal with and they should be able to control. it's not an immediate red flag (unless they keep getting in trouble).

 

when you start dealing with cocaine...yeah, that's a different beast altogether.

He actually is a decent blocker.  He was pretty good at getting RBs through that second level.

It's a shame when guys get on the drugs. Len Bias' death really opened my eyes and I steered clear of them. Except Alcohol, which I imbibed in way too much.

Kind of off subject, but I read something  (I found it) that basically said that Olsen won't be a cap casualty this coming season, but probably will be one next year as we'll only be on the hook for 2.7 mil, but will clear up 5 mil if he is cut.  The writer also mentioned the fact that when G-man won it all with the Giants, that cheap TEs were on the roster (Kevin Boss and Jake Ballard).

Wouldn't be mad at ASJ in the first at all. He's a pass catcher more in the Old fashion TE role but he would allow us to release ben stock and free up a roster space at the same time with a useful everydown player.That said i didn't  know his yac was that bad. He should be a beast at his size.

that was actually the first name i thought of when i made that post about cocaine.

 

i don't know why, but that whole thing really shook me and my little brother up. i was about 15 when that happened. neither of us were maryland fans but we liked both bias and lefty. it's a shame that lefty was made the scapegoat by the school.

 

and as far as the alcohol is concerned, i lost two friends to drunk driving when i was young. one good friend was hit on his bycicle just a little bit after getting home from school one day and another was a senior when i was a freshman who had just got a full four year scholarship to UNC playing DT who got drunk after a dance and drove head on into someone and died instantly.

 

both of those two really shaped my thinking on drinking.
