Dynasty Rookie Profile: Jeremy Ruckert (2022 Fantasy Football) PREMIUM
Jeremy Ruckert is a senior tight end from The Ohio State University. He hails from Lindenhurst, N.Y., where he was the No. 1 player in the state in high school according to the 247Sports composite rankings. Ruckert was a top-40 player in the country and the No. 2 ranked tight end, only behind Brevin Jordan, now of the Houston Texans. Ruckert’s commitment to Ohio State helped the Buckeyes secure 2018’s No. 2 rated recruiting class per 247Sports.
Ruckert possesses an ideal frame for an NFL tight end, standing at 6’5 and 250 pounds. He’s arguably the best blocking tight end in the class but has minimal career production in the receiving game. As a part of the most loaded pass-catching group in the country at Ohio State, Ruckert was not a featured part of the Buckeyes’ offense. However, with All-Americans Jaxon Smith-Njigba, Garrett Wilson and Chris Olave lurking in the wide receiver room, his lack of involvement was most likely not due to lack of ability.
