DEEP FRIED DRAFT

MEAL QUALITY


Ryan Yurachek is a short yardage weapon as a pass catcher. He will fill a role on all special teams units. However, because of his size, he will not be able to be an inline blocker at the next level. As an H-Back he will have a place in the league. Yurachek’s draft value for me is probably between the late 6th round-7th round area, but I do envision him making an NFL roster.

BEST INGREDIENTS

Yurachek lined up all over for the Herd. He lined up inline, in the slot, and as an H-back. Yurachek has reliable hands and is a hands catcher. He runs clean routes. Yurachek is a solid blocker on the edge. He was asked to stay in a lot against the formidable NC State front four and more than held his own.

WORST INGREDIENTS


Yurachek is not particularly fast. I think he probably runs in the high 4.7 range. Can he block as a true fullback? He was never asked to in the games I watched but he will probably have to at some point. Yurachek is only 6’1” tall. If you are shorter than me (6’3”) you can’t be a tight end at the next level.
