Scouting Report: Dallas Goedert, TE, South Dakota State

DALLAS GOEDERT | SOUTH DAKOTA STATE | TE | 6032 | 255 | 4.82E | 2018

Goedert is an oversized wide receier that lines up all over the field, he’s a powerful runner with the football in his hands and he has exceptional ball skills. He has the ability to make plays he has no business making, namely the one handed catch against Villanova in 2017 that was just ridiculous. He has an excellent catching radius and makes plays on poorly thrown balls that most receivers couldn’t convert. He’s a functional inline blocker as a traditional Y end but he’s just as effective off set in the backfield. Goedert also gets used on end arounds, bubble screens and short outs in motion to take advantage of his natural power as a runner. He is a focal point of the Jackrabbit’s passing game. He can kill you from close within and he can beat you deep but most impressive, the big man goes up and skies for the football. He attacks it and has that my ball mentality. He’s just a big hairy american winning machine and easily one of the top seniors at the position. His game against North Dakota State showed off a savage receiver that cannot be stopped. His game footage is just as impressive if not more so than Bears draft pick Adam Shaheen from Ashland.
