Trey McBride 2022 NFL Draft Profile

The 2022 NFL Draft will be a great event for teams to start building for their future. Here is the Trey McBride 2022 NFL Draft Profile.

Trey McBride Background

Position: Tight End

Size: 6-foot-3, 249 pounds

Class: Senior

2021 stats: 90 receptions, 1,121 receiving yards, 1 touchdown catch, 12.5 yards per reception

McBride has been one of the better players in the Mountain West over the last three seasons. Now he is in the 2022 NFL Draft.

He was a three-star prospect out of Colorado who chose to stay in-state to play for Colorado State. As a freshman, he saw limited playing time, registering seven receptions for 89 yards and one touchdown. His role increased as a sophomore and McBride showed his development with 45 receptions for 560 yards and four touchdowns. Colorado State struggled and finished the season with a 4-8 record. The Rams were only able to play four games in 2020 due to COVID and finished at 1-3. McBride played well in the shortened season with 22 receptions for 330 yards and four touchdowns. He had the best season of his college career in 2021, totaling 90 receptions for 1,121 yards and one touchdown. The Rams still couldn’t win many games, as they finished with just three wins.

Following a college career where McBride showed he was a matchup problem, he is now headed to the next level. He is currently projected to be a second to third-round pick in the 2022 NFL Draft.

Trey McBride Strengths

McBride is a solid blocker for a tight end. He weighs 249 pounds and has a frame that is well filled out. When blocking, he uses his frame and strength well to move defenders. He has solid effort, which is a good start for a prospect looking to develop. Along with run blocking, he also showed he can help in pass protection if asked.

His hands are very solid, as McBride rarely has any focus drops. He also showed the ability to catch passes off his frame and haul in jump balls. McBride can go over the middle and make contested catches. He pries away passes from defenders with very strong hands. By most measures, McBride is a reliable target.

For a tight end, McBride is a solid route runner. He gets in and out of his breaks relatively quickly and can sell routes decently well. His ability to get separation will help him become a matchup problem. At Colorado State, he was able to show a decent number of routes that he excelled at.

Trey McBride Weaknesses

While he is a solid blocker, McBride needs to maintain leverage. He drops his head, which makes him lose his leverage. If he can stay low and explode into a defender, he will have more power at the point of attack and can be a more complete blocker.

McBride struggled to find the end zone with regularity in 2021 and only had 10 touchdowns throughout his four seasons at Colorado State. He is a tight end that is a friendly target, but in the red zone he isn’t the biggest mismatch. At only 6-foot-3 he doesn’t have too much of a height advantage over defensive backs and linebackers. He will need to continue to work on winning jump balls and winning in the red zone.

He isn’t the most athletic tight end in the class. McBride has average speed and quickness. While he does have decent body control, he isn’t the best athlete. He has a limited catch radius and picks up most of his yards after the catch because he is strong.

Projected Draft Range: Second Round Pick-Third Round Pick
