Scouting Report

Joey Weaver is a very good overall football player with the size, athleticism and versatile skill-set to get recruited at both linebacker and tight end. He’s tall, well-built with good, lean bulk and the frame to add more. Runs well on both sides of the ball and offers a lot of range. We project he will play linebacker at the college level and offer the versatility to play all three positions in a traditional 4-3 / 3/4 defense. He’s a very aware and smart football player which allows him to play fast. Makes lot of plays in coverage and in space. He may be more instinctive dropping back than coming forward, which is rare at this stage. He gets depth in his drop quickly, while reading the QB and feeling routes develop. He anticipates the pass, turns to run without much wasted motion and closes with good burst on the ball. Undercuts routes and has great ball skills. He shows the size and athleticism needed to match up on flexed tight ends in man-to-man. Will fill strong between the tackles as well. He’s quick off the spot. He shows the lateral quicks and agility to clear traffic and make plays inside-out on the ball between the tackles, and the good range to make stops outside the hashes. Pursues with a motor. He’s quick to fill downhill. He displays anchor and stacking strength at point of attack but not as dominating as you would expect at his size. We do feel he that he plays with leverage and explosiveness from hips on contact. He’s a strong, drag down tackler who utilizes his length tracking plays down from backside.. A talented, big-Tight end with the athleticism, hands and polished pass receiving and hard running skills to create mismatches. His inline blocking skills is  “very good” also coaches this kid can play . Overall, Joey has a great frame and matching athleticism and football smarts. He’s ahead of the curve with his diagnosing skill and understanding of the game, which should allow for a smoother transition to the college level.
