Josh Whyle
Cincinnati bear cats

Advantages:

Lamattina: Whyle has a very large and rounded body which makes him a consistent candidate to be a disproportionate against most of the cornerbacks he fought. He’s a very physical blocker built enough to make an impact in this area of ​​the game. Has the versatility to play in-line and in slot. Indicates lightning bolts as receivers to be a consistent goal for his team. Can assert himself through his route with size and physicality.

Disadvantage:

Lamattina: He’s still a very raw candidate as the Bearcats have limited playtime to work with the other tight ends. The ankles are quite stiff, which is expected from someone his size. Not the fastest who will push the field as a tight end if he should stay in the middle of the field.

Summary:

Lamattina: Josh Whyle has the size and build to grow into an NFL tight end. He’s had only a few snaps so far in his career for Cincinnati, so his development will be fascinating to see how he works in a firmer starting role on the tight end.

Background:
