All aboard the Tommy Tremble bandwagon

We got 2 mf DOGS in Horn and Tremble in the words of Jalen Ramsey.    He plays with intensity, that’s for sure. Ian Thomas plays like Charmin so this will be a nice change of pace

Seems like the kind of guy I would have been pumped to land in the 5th or 6th round. Not sure I see the value in a 3rd round pick for a blocking TE/H-Back with limited pass catching ability.

Literally. No more automatically going down when touched with no yards after contact, Tremble already more man than Thomas could ever imagine to be lol

I agree. I wish we would've waited around the 4th round or so, but I'm not mad just because he wasn't given many opportunities in the passing game, but with how athletic and how high his ceiling is, I don't mind it. Glad we are just finding our identity.

This is actually the pick I'm most excited about from last night. It addresses two major concerns we have this off-season:

Pass protection: Is he an elite tackle? No. Is he a complete solution? No. But with the surefire starting caliber Tackles gone, (basically since Sewell) the best we could hope to do was augment the pass protection. And it doesn't look like there's any better option for exactly that than Tremble. 

Preserve Mccaffrey: If we've learned anything, when a coach has a player like CMac at their disposal, spelling him doesn't seem to be an option in their minds. So he's going to get almost all the carries and almost all the abuse. So again the best we could hope for is an elite blocker who can help ensure he takes a lot less abuse. More lanes opening up, less getting blind-sided, this is an investment in the best running back in the game today. 

I don't see how you can look at what Tremble brings to the offense and question if he was worth a 3rd or risk him not being there in the 4th. I love this pick! 

That is actually not a bad point. As bad as we are likely to be at LT, having a nasty blocking TE could be the safety net that limits how much damage our LT situation could cause. 

Considering how likely it is that our LT is a turnstile, if we see a lot of schemed help from Tremble(or others) that would make me feel a lot better about the coaches understanding the roster situation a little better. The anti-Shula move.

scouts have been saying for years they didn't understand why Notre Dame didn't throw to him more often. Most likely because it's Notre Dame and you Have To Play The Right Way At Notre Dame and That Means NOTRE DAME FOOTBALL or whatever dumb bullshit

when you get stuck in a role it's hard to break out of it.

I said this yesterday but he’s essentially an oline pick. Also he doesn’t have bad hands. Even just a quick YouTube search of all his catches shows him making really good contested, leaping and diving catches. He’s super talented. I imagine he’ll be used in the passing game some but I wouldn’t completely count out his abilities as a pass catcher yet.

I get it, we just see him as more of a complete TE than ND played him. Also have a great blocker in the backfield will help our shaky line.

I think the issue was he had more drops than touchdowns at Notre Dame. So he moved down the priority list when it came to throwing the ball to tight ends. Then they recruited Michael Mayer who was the number 2 TE in the country in high school and he is actually a great pass catcher. So Tremble lost the opportunity to a freshman and the freshman gave no reasons for them to look elsewhere. True freshman tight end finished the year tied for first in catches on the team, was second in yards and tied for second in TDs. And again, Tremble dropped his way out of being a target for them. 
 

But this isn’t ignore the TE is somehow Notre Dame football lol. The true freshman tight end was their second most targeted pass catcher. Tremble just gave them too many reasons to throw his way.
