Pass catchers have become ever more important as the style of play in the NFL continues to evolve. The league is passing more than ever before, and having reliable receivers who can operate in space or make contested catches cannot only help you win games but aid in the development of your quarterback.
Brycen Tremayne is a wide receiver prospect out of Stanford who is hoping to get selected during the 2023 NFL Draft. Despite having a draftable grade, he may be in the back of a very long line. Here is everything you need to know about Tremayne in his scouting report.

Tony Pauline’s Scouting Report for Brycen Tremayne
Strengths: Underrated pass catcher with possibilities as a possession receiver. Battles opponents with his hands to separate, plays with balance as well as body control, and displays outstanding eye/hand coordination. Plays faster than his 40 time, tracks the pass in the air, and easily makes the reception at full speed.
Gets vertical, adjusts, and wins out for the contested throw. Stays low exiting breaks, then extends his hands to make the reception away from his frame. Gives effort blocking downfield.
Weaknesses: Posted average production at Stanford, as last season was the first time he caught more than 20 passes. Lacks a second gear and deep burst. Struggles separating through routes.
Overall: Tremayne is a terrific receiver who possesses reliable hands, great concentration, and a tough-guy attitude. His tape is outstanding, and while he struggles separating through routes, Tremayne offers enough pass-catching skill to make a roster as a possession receiver, third-down target, and a red-zone threat.

Brycen Tremayne Current Draft Projection
According to Tony Pauline’s Big Board, Tremayne is a sixth-round prospect. This does not mean he will get drafted in the sixth round. Many things can impact where a player ends up getting drafted … or if they get drafted.
For example, while Tremayne has a draftable grade, he is Pauline’s 34th-ranked wide receiver and his 236th-ranked prospect overall. It is more likely that Tremayne goes undrafted, as 34 wide receivers ranked above him.
For Tremayne, one main reason he might go undrafted is his Relative Athletic Score of 7.11, which is considered just average. Most alarming for NFL teams is his performance in the speed and explosion categories. His speed was graded as “poor” in the 40-yard dash, especially his 10- and 20-yard splits. This indicates poor burst off of the line and long-striding to hit top speed.
Explosion-wise, Tremayne showed a poor vertical jump of only 32”. As a 6’4” wideout, teams would love to see him be able to leap up and grab 50/50 balls. His vertical testing would indicate that may not be a strong suit of his, and when compounded with him not being a burner down the field, finding a spot for Tremayne could be tough.
