Saints TE Adam Trautman Dynasty Rookie Analysis
- Draft Position: 3.105 | School: Dayton
- Height: 6’5” | Weight: 255 pounds
- 40-yard dash: 4.80 seconds
- 2020 Age: 23 | Class: Redshirt Senior
- Recruitment Stars: 0
A high-school quarterback, Trautman received no interest from FBS scouts, so he enrolled at Dayton, took a redshirt year, converted to tight end and quickly became one of the best tight ends in college football.
- 2016 (11 games): 24-238-3 receiving
- 2017 (11 games): 43-537-5 receiving
- 2018 (11 games): 41-604-9 receiving
- 2019 (11 games): 70-916-14 receiving
As a senior, Trautman had a position-high 94.2 PFF grade and played all across the formation: Inline, on the wing, in the slot and out wide.
Trautman isn’t fast, but he is notably quick for his size, as evidenced by his 95th-percentile 11.05 agility score (per PP). And he’s not a great blocker, but he’s functional. He’s a fairly well-rounded player.
The issue with Trautman is that he played at a small school, so his production and ability might not translate to the NFL, and even if he does develop into a starter, by the time that happens, quarterback Drew Brees will almost certainly be retired.
He’s worth drafting at the end of Round 3, but he’s a speculative investment.
NFL Prospect Comp: Dallas Goedert with less draft capital and maybe less speed
