2020 NFL Draft Scouting Report
Adam Trautman, TE, Dayton Flyers
Fast-rising, small-school tight end with a complete game. Quickly releases off the line of scrimmage and runs solid pass routes. Fires into breaks and stays low on exit. Extends his hands to make the reception away from his frame, wins out for the contested catch and takes a big hit and holds onto the ball. Comes back into the clearing and offers the quarterback a target. Displays natural pass-catching skills. Explosive at the point, fires off the snap into blocks and gives effort. Blocks with consistent leverage and pad level.
Stiff. Tested poorly at the NFL Combine.
Trautman came into the season graded as a late-round pick, performed well as a senior and had a terrific week of practice at the Senior Bowl. His stock took a step back with his combine workout, but Trautman has the potential to develop into a No. 1 tight end at the next level and is worth a second-day pick.
