In-Play Film Analysis:

Utah’s Brant Kuithe has been one of the most productive tight ends in college football throughout his career and now looks to cement himself as a top NFL prospect. Kuithe was Utah’s No. 1 target (over Buffalo Bills first-round pick Dalton Kincaid) before suffering a season-ending ACL injury early in the 2022 season. 

As a prospect, Kuithe offers just average size and above-average overall athleticism. He is used all over the formation and was at his best in the slot and out wide. Kuithe has just-above-average speed but flashes excellent short-area quickness and change of direction. He is an excellent route-runner who flashes explosiveness and short-area quickness in and out of breaks. He is a long strider who can win down the seam but is by no means a burner. Kuithe is capable of running the full route tree and showcased an ability to have the passing game funnel through him. He was used heavily on wide receiver screens, which highlights his very good ability as a runner with the ball in his hands, as he offers very good vision, balance, and suddenness. 

Kuithe will be a tough evaluation at the next level because he has proven to be such a productive receiver in college but is your classic tweener. He rarely aligned in-line at Utah and when he did, he proved to be just an average blocker in the run game as he has just average strength and power at the point of attack. Additionally, he isn’t that good of an athlete to make a living as a full-time receiver at the next level. His best role will be as an “F” or a move tight end who can win in the slot and on leak-out routes when detached off the line of scrimmage. 

Overall, Kuithe will be a valuable asset to a creative offensive coordinator at the next level but I do not see an every-down starter.
