Player Notes Pros

  • Has shown the football IQ and versatility to align inline, flexed out, & in the backfield  

  • In the run game he's a willing blocker, competitive & strong enough to hold the point

  • In the passing game is where his true value is. He's an ideal fit in todays NFL

  • Good releases off the line of scrimmage, demonstrates good savvy as a route runner 

  • Does a good job uncovering & creating separation against man coverage underneath 

  • Demonstrates good hands & courage to fearlessly catch seams over the middle 

  • Has very good long speed and shows the competitiveness to make the tough catches 

  • He will be a matchup problem for linebackers & safeties at the NFL level 

  • Versatility will allow use as an effective “F” or an “H” back role in the NFL 

  • Outside of QB and o-line, Taumoepeau has played every position on the Vikings offense 

  • Hands are consistent, also has the ability to reach into areas outside of his comfort zone

  • Snags the ball out of the air and quickly puts it away in order to get up the field

  • Above average speed in the short to intermediate areas of the field are evident 

  • Large target between the hashes by winning in tight areas and posting up in the middle

  • A majority of his damage came in the underneath areas, & down the seams as well 

  • Utilized on deep over routes on opposite hash, vertical seams, & shallow crossers

Player Notes Cons

  • Attitude of wanting to block, but lacks clear understanding of how to & proper technique

  • Body movements & running motion can be a bit tight, doesn't have ideal TE size

  • Build up & distance runner, takes a few yards in order to show signs of another gear 

  • Fails to use his arms when opening up & running, shows delay to hit another gear

  • Any routes that travel past 10-12 yards are a challenge to create clear separation

  • Not ideally suited as 3 down TE, should mainly be used in pass situations & flexed out

  • Could improve overall strength, especially adding strength & technique in run game
