A few days ago, I posted Gerald Christian’s results from the NFL Combine in the tests he participated in. This one is a little different. This will show his measurements and the analysis on him from NFL.com. It also gives his grade, and what that number means as a projection for him as a pro.
Arm Length: 32 1/2″
Weight: 244 lbs
Hands: 10 3/4″
Analysis from NFL.com
Good athlete. Gets into routes quickly. Keeps feet under him and plays with balance and desired play strength as a target. Turns out of breaks ready to make catches. Good arm length with really large hands.
Not a big target. Stiff hips. Rounds routes off and is upright through the route. Will sit and wait on throw rather than working back to ball when window is constricting.
A competitive, move tight end with an ability to make contested catches that other tight ends will struggle with. While he won’t look as natural and fluid as you would expect, the tape shows a guy who can get separation in space. Has traits to be a quality player who brings diversity and toughness to an offense.
Grade from NFL.com
5.29 – NFL backup or special teams potential
