Tank Dell Draft Profile
Tank Dell has the skills to become a Tyreek Hill prototype at the NFL level. His 5’8″, 165-pound frame is extremely small for the NFL, but the combination of his pure breakaway speed and agility is enough to keep him relatively high on most team’s draft boards. On top of his big-play ability, he runs crisp and precise routes that create ample separation on all three levels of the field. Primarily thanks to his speed and acceleration, he also offers tremendous value in the return game.
Aside from the obvious — his small, slender frame — Tank Dell struggles mightily with drops, totaling 21 drops across the final two seasons at Houston. Although his routes are crisp and create separation, he struggles against press coverage and fails to haul in catches through contact. Considering he’s smaller, he lacks the length most receivers possess and has a below-average catch radius.
