HEIGHT: 6'4⅞"
WEIGHT: 271
HAND: 10½"
ARM: 32⅞"
WINGSPAN: 79½"

40-YARD DASH: 4.64
3-CONE: 7.02
SHUTTLE: 4.26
VERTICAL: 33.5"
BROAD: 121"

POSITIVES
— Rare size for the position.
— Explosive athlete. Big, powerful mover who covers more ground than his frame would suggest.
— Above-average coordination and mobility. Fairly graceful athlete.
— Good, strong blocking tight end. Shows consistent technique and effort with power to finish blocks.
— Tons of experience as an in-line Y tight end.

NEGATIVES
— Moves well for his size, but isn't a legit speed threat from the TE position.
— Not as much of a vertical ball-winner as his size suggests.

— Very limited experience and production as a receiver. Partly a product of Illinois' offense, but makes the projection difficult nonetheless.

Draft Projection
Round 4

Overview​

The former walk-on became a team captain in 2023. He's a huge Y tight end capable of becoming a quality run blocker in the NFL. Hand placement limits his consistency, but that should get corrected. He blocks with good leg drive and plays with some nasty at the point of attack. He'll be better working double-teams and combo blocks than blocking in space. He's the type of garden-variety pass catcher that you would expect a run-blocking specialist to be. Reiman's career will be defined by how he blocks, which should be good enough to make it in the league.

Strengths​

  • Outstanding size and lean mass for an in-line blocker.
  • Possesses adequate length and huge hands.
  • Big target for quick sink routes against zone.
  • Impressive leg drive to wash down defensive ends.
  • Lays into defenders in space with meaningful pop.
  • Blocks with ideal base and mirror when asked to protect passer.

Weaknesses​

  • Heavy-legged into his routes and breaks.
  • Unable to separate from man coverage in the seam.
  • Lacks upper-body agility to open and catch throws behind him.
  • Needs to block with tighter hands in the run game.
  • Must improve body control and positioning to better sustain

His combine numbers are Crazy good for a 271lb TE, poor production
Guess the cardinals scout working in Chicago area has a big influence lol
We drafted at least One round earlier both Illinois guys

Does anyone know the compensation that we got from going from 79 to 82? NFLN didn't show it.
