Zach Ertz thumbnail

Second round, 35th overall: Zach Ertz, TE, Stanford.
Height: 6-5. Weight: 249. 40-yard dash: 4.76. Vertical leap: 30 ½. Long jump: 9-3. Bench press: 24. 
Zach Ertz, Eagles second-round pick.

Upside: Good hands. Huge hands measuring 9 1-4 inches. Solid route runner. Sets defenders up. Led Cardinals with 69 receptions for 898 yards (13.0 average) and six touchdowns.

Downside: Lean-framed. Not much of a blocker. Away from the combine lights ran 4.68 in the 40. One-year starter, although he played behind Coby Fleener, the stellar TE for the Colts.

Summary: Ertz’s size, hands and route-running ability gives the Eagles another weapon in what sounds very much like a New England Patriots style multi-tight end attack.
