2016 NFL Draft Scouting Notes: Nick Vannett, TE, Ohio State

2016 NFL Draft Scouting Notes: Nick Vannett, TE, Ohio State

By Lijah Spencer (@tweaked74)

Tonight in scouting notes we look at a player who is stepping into the #1 Tight End spot on his team for the first time this upcoming season after sharing time in all of his previous years. Here are my notes:

Nick Vannett. TE. 6’6. 260 lbs. Senior. Ohio State

The Positives

1) An aggressive blocker, both run blocking and pass blocking

2) Good catching ability

3) Good route running

The Negatives

1) Limited experience as a starter

Nick Vannett is a fifth year senior who is a very game experienced (has played in 40 games) and talented tight end. He is expected to step into the number one TE slot for the first time this year after sharing the field with Jeff Heuerman the last few seasons. Vannett is a physical player who is good at both run blocking and pass blocking. He is a decent route runner, and has good catching ability. He has good enough speed to be a deep threat, and is good at run after the catch. Last season he shared the field with now Denver Bronco TE Jeff Heuerman, and he still caught 19 balls for 220 yards and 5 TD’s. With a full season as the #1 TE his production should improve, and if it does I expect him to be one of the top TE’s in next year’s NFL draft.
