Nick Eubanks projects as a secondary tight end for the NFL game. Eubanks, who had a forgettable senior season with the Wolverines program after entering the year battling an undisclosed injury, has plenty more promise than what he’s put into use at Michigan. He has all the athletic tools to be one of these mismatch TE2 players that are a constant thorn in the sides of opposing defenses, but for him to reach that ceiling, it's going to require patience and the perfect landing spot. Michigan failed to pull production out of him despite being an offense that frequently calls upon tight ends to help move the football in the passing game. For Eubanks, a perfect role would be as an “H” type tight end who aligns offset off the line of scrimmage and is tasked with shallow releases and charged with winning versus linebackers in coverage. That's where his functional athleticism can build him separation underneath and set him up for yards after the catch.
Ideal Role: “H” type TE2.
Scheme Fit: Run heavy, play-action oriented passing offense featuring misdirection and multi-TE sets.
