PROS: Noah Fant is of the most freakish athletes in all of college football. Reported 42.5” vertical from spring camp, which would be a top score out of the 2018 NFL Combine. Has unbelievable blend of size and speed, graceful in the open field and will be a mismatch nightmare for safeties and linebackers across the league. Has big play ability as a receiver, averaging 16.5 yards per catch and tallying 11 touchdowns on just 30 overall receptions as a first-time starter in 2017. First step quickness as a blocker wins angles to gain favorable positioning at the point of attack, plus good urgency and effort to continue to press and turn out edge defenders in the run game. Has had success as a zone blocker to ride out defenders and rework hands to continue to gain leverage relative to the ball carrier. Dynamic seam threat with size and catch radius in the middle of the field to elevate overtop of chasing defenders and take the football off the top of defender’s helmet. Will be a red zone terror thanks to versatile alignment and ability to create mismatches before the snap. Already runs a versatile tree, has created separation vertically, carrying across the middle of the field or working into the flat before turning eyes up the field.

CONS: Lean cut frame can be limiting if tasked with playing in-line with regularity. Plays with a loose base as a blocker and failure to tether feet to the ground has restricted functional play strength when having to lock horns head up with defenders. Shouldn’t be considered a viable option as a pass protector, versatility and athleticism would be wasted if kept in the backfield.
