Arkansas tight end Cheyenne O’Grady is a talented tight that end is going under the radar as the NFL combine approaches. The Arkansas team has had some talented players the past few years, but the talent has not translated to success on the football field. O’Grady has improved tremendously since I first scouted him in high school and I look forward to seeing how he will perform over the next few weeks, but now on to the report.
O’Grady is an excellent receiving tight end. O’Grady has good hands and will pull in the tough reception. O’Grady does not drop passes and he is dangerous after the catch. Cheyenne has the ability to run defenders over and his run after the catch talent will cause teams to take notice of him. O’Grady just knows how to get open and his talent in finding ways to get open is impressive.
The Arkansas program has been a mess the past few years and O’Grady does have some off the field issues that teams will want to take notice of and study. O’Grady’s blocking could use some improvement, but he has improved tremendously since his days at Fayetteville High School.
O’Grady will likely be a seventh-round selection or a free agent. O’Grady has the talent to move up draft boards and it would not shock me to see him do so. O’Grady will wind up on an NFL roster, it’s whether or not he will be drafted or sign as a free agent.
