TE3 – Jack Stoll
With fewer tight end targets to go around this season, the #3 tight end role is likely one that’s going to be reserved for heavy blocking sets, which is where undrafted free agent Jack Stoll comes into play.
Stoll had just 61 career catches to his name in college, and was primarily used at Nebraska for his above average blocking skills. At 6-4 and 260lbs, Stoll takes up a lot of space on the outside of the offensive line, almost operating as a sixth lineman at times.
Rolling with the expectation that Sirianni is going to use his tight ends less than his predecessor Doug Pederson, it makes sense to designate the TE3 job as one that’s built around heavy run-blocking. Stoll was very effective at said role during his time at Nebraska, and Howie Roseman didn’t even have to use a draft pick to get him.
The fact that Roseman felt comfortable adding zero tight ends during free agency (prior to Rodgers) and zero tight ends during the draft says a lot about how the Eagles view their tight end room moving forward, at least from my point of view.
With little competition to go around, Stoll should be able to find a home as the team’s go-to blocking TE.
