Overview

Eldridge is a big, powerful blocking tight end who has very limited receiving skills and lacks the speed to be any kind of threat downfield. He has struggled to stay healthy for a full season and missed time due to a neck injury during his senior year. He also spent some time at guard to take advantage of his size and pass-blocking skills. He can be a powerful blocker once he gets his hands on opponents but also can be late off the snap and often gets beaten by quick defensive linemen. He could get a look as either an offensive lineman or tight end but will need time to develop.

Analysis

Strengths

Eldridge has ideal height and bulk. Very powerful blocker who generates a strong push and gets his hands inside the defender's pads. Effective pass blocker who was utilized at guard in college. Fights every play and shows a bit of a mean streak.

Weaknesses

Battled a neck injury as a senior at Oklahoma, and durability is a concern. Does not have the speed or ball skills to be a weapon as a pass catcher at the next level. Fires off the line a bit late and struggles to block more athletic defenders.
