2021 NFL Draft Scouting Report: TE Cary Angeline

A USC transfer, Cary Angeline had a productive finish to his career at NC State, where he collected 11 touchdown receptions over his final two seasons. The Wolfpack had Angeline split time between serving as an in-line tight end and slot receiver while occasionally getting reps in the backfield. His best traits are his height, length, hands, and ball skills, which lead to some exciting plays in the middle of the field. His hands are soft and he tracks the football well. Angeline is a competitive blocker with good length. When it comes to areas of concern, Angeline is a high athlete that lacks agility, quickness, and speed to truly be dynamic as a receiver. As a blocker, he doesn’t have the balance or functional strength to be more than a positional blocker. Angeline can provide quality depth at the next level, especially for an offense that likes to flex tight ends out to the slot where he has the ability to be a size mismatch in the passing game. 

Ideal Role: Depth player with the size and ball skills to challenge the seam and settle in zones.

Scheme Fit: Spread.
