Erick All’s Strengths

Erick All is an experienced prospect who shows his knowledge and feel for the game in his route running. He knows how to attack cornerbacks to turn their hips or make them flatfooted. In the stem of his quick game routes, he knows exactly when the corner is out of position and can accelerate out of his break to gain separation. All was asked to run an expanded route tree where his hip fluidity and zone IQ let him succeed. Even when faced with physicality, he has the foot speed and dip to avoid contact altogether. He is also a dynamic RAC threat. This isn’t seen often at the tight end position, but All’s elusiveness and size make him an impossible tackle.


All was used as a move blocker, putting his athleticism to use. As a split-zone blocker, he is very physical and comes in with a good aiming point to successfully get the kickout. All was also able to identify log versus kick when he was the wrap man in gap. He was even used as a fullback at times and showed flashes of a consistent aiming point.

Erick All’s Weaknesses

Despite his route nuance and foot speed, if All doesn’t avoid contact, he will get rerouted. He doesn’t have the play strength to body defenders and seems to have maxed out his frame. His lack of power also shows in 50/50 situations where he averaged a 38.9 percent contested catch rate in college. All cannot win at the catch point consistently, as he doesn’t have the catch radius nor hand strength to make tough catches. 

For as great a receiver as he is, All is just as poor as a blocker. He was rarely put in a position to impact the run game due to his poor technique and power. When in-line blocking, he lacks the strength to handle linemen, which pairs with his consistently poor pad level. On any type of zone run, he is late off the ball and must lunge to get back into position. His lunge lets defensive linemen easily side step or shuck him and make the splash play. As the cutoff man in zone, he has an inconsistent first step that puts him at a disadvantage right away. Even though he was used as a move blocker, his success rate was very poor. All often took a poor angle and lunged to make the block, letting the defender side-step him with ease. 


Draft Projection: Day 3 Pick

Erick All’s poor blocking and injury history will make him available during Day 3 of the draft, but don’t be surprised if he outplays his draft stock. He is easily one of the draft’s best receiving threats at the tight end position and is yet another prospect from the great tight end school of Iowa. 

For All to succeed at the next level, he will need a coordinator willing to let him stay in the slot and be a dynamic weapon. He should not play snaps as an in-line tight end unless it’s on a pass-heavy down where he can take advantage of matchups. Finally, All will need to stay healthy and not let his past injuries come back up.
