Chargers to meet with Notre Dame TE Tommy Tremble

Now this is a guy with a ton of ability and upside, but he’ll need to develop for a year or two.

With the off-chance that the Chargers are not able to re-sign Hunter Henry, it’s no surprise to hear about the team meeting with various tight ends in this upcoming draft class. One of the latest prospects to recently meet with the Bolts, according to The Draft Network’s Justin Melo, has been Notre Dame’s Tommy Tremble. A smooth gliding “F” tight end, Tremble has spent his time in South Bend competing with the likes of 2020 second-rounder Cole Kmet and standout freshman Michael Mayer.

At 6’4 and 248 pounds, I’d say Tremble fits the prototypical build of the NFL’s modern day tight end. Within the Irish offense, Tremble was used as an H-Back, mainly moving around the offense front with various motions and being utilized as a run blocker out on the perimeter for outside runs. At the professional level, that’s likely where he’ll find a role as he continues to develop.

In his two seasons of play after redshirting in 2018, Tremble amassed just 37 total catches for 401 yards and four total touchdowns (all in 2019).

Tremble reminds me the most of current Chargers tight end Stephen Anderson but with a bit more size to him. Both like to really stick their head into their run fits, as well, which is a huge plus for tight ends that aren’t utilized as pure receiving threats.

I like the player as I believe he has a ton of potential, but I likely wouldn’t take him with anything hire than a fifth, and that’s even if Henry doesn’t re-sign.

Have any of you watched Tremble before? If so, what do you like about him? What don’t you like? I want to hear opinions on this one.
