Ben Sinnott’s Strengths

Sinnott possesses a good build of height, weight, length, and athleticism that you want for an NFL tight end. Very good acceleration and burst with impressive short-area quickness. His speed and burst allow him to attack all levels of the field (short, intermediate, and deep), opening up opportunities. He can stretch the field down the seam or towards the boundary against any coverage. Good hand-eye coordination and ball-tracking skills with good body control through the contest. Can high-point the football really well with balance and strong hands. Displays good blocking ability with good hand placement and strength, contributing effectively to the run game.


Ben Sinnott’s Weaknesses

Adequate route runner due to lack of sharpness, resulting in inconsistent separation at breaks or over the top. Lack of functional strength and physicality at the point of attack. Needs refinement in blocking technique and angles out wide. Adequate pad level in both run blocking and pass protection.


Sinnott is a hybrid and athletic tight end who offers positional flexibility in alignment out wide, in the slot, inline, and at fullback. In the 2024 NFL Draft, he emerges as a rising tight-end prospect whose tape showcases versatility and an intriguing ceiling with somewhat of limitations. Sinnott’s acceleration and burst off the line of scrimmage are impressive with his ability to open the field, making himself a reliable target in the passing game. His ability to make contested catches due to his hand-eye coordination and control with his use as a positional blocker in open space adds layers to his offensive utility. With development of his route-running ability and refinement in blocking, he could solidify himself as a long-term No. 1 tight end in the NFL.
