All have injury concerns, but he also has the smash landing spot to make a LaPorta/Kincaid-level impact. The Bengals don't have an established TE1 and they have an elite passer in Joe Burrow. Tee Higgins gets traded, and other Bengals WRs don't work out besides Ja'Marr Chase...and bingo. All says he will be ready for training camp, so I am "ALL" about buying the dip at his TE40 ADP. When in doubt, draft a former Iowa tight end. 11-inch hands (98th percentile).

All comes with a decent injury history, with an ACL tear in 2023 and a season-ending back injury in 2022. Before being sidelined in 2023, he was seventh in receiving yards and 11th in missed tackles forced among tight ends. All was headed for a big breakout campaign. Overall, his statistical output jumps off the page in terms of metrics that I care about. Last year, among all tight ends with at least ten man coverage targets, he ranked first in yards per route run and eighth in PFF receiving grade against man coverage. All is a fluid mover. He is a friendly underneath target with impressive start/stop ability. He ran some whip routes at Iowa that will open your eyes. He has smooth change of direction and quickly turns from receiver to rusher once the ball is in his hands. He has a good understanding of manipulating defenders and leverage. He moves like a big wide receiver in his routes with suddenness in and out of his route breaks. Yes, he had a 13.8% drop rate in college, but many of these drops were the concentration variety. I'm not overly concerned about his drops because he also makes plenty of catches in tight spaces with defenders bearing down on him. All will cash his NFL paychecks because of his receiving talent and not his blocking prowess. He only managed 26 pass-blocking snaps over the last five years of his collegiate career. While All was unable to athletically test, there are plenty of instances on film that suggest he has an easy 4.5 (4.6 40-yard dash at worst) speed. In 2021 against Penn State, he snags a pass, puts his foot down on the accelerator, beats Kalen King to the corner (4.61 high school 40 times), and begins to pull away from him down the boundary. Dynasty Outlook: The Bengals smashed this draft class and selected another one of my man crushes of this draft class with Erick All. Consider me ALL IN on All (ok, I'll see myself out after that dad joke). Let's get this out of the way. No, I'm not worried about his injury history. The back injury that led to the premature ending of his 2022 season was proven to be in the rearview after he started crushing souls in 2023 without issues. His 2023 season was cut short due to a torn ACL, which is the only injury recovery that concerns me, but hey, I'm an ardent believer in modern medicine and science. All should make a complete recovery from that injury as well. So, what's left to debate here? Landing spot? Ok, he's tied to Joe Burrow, with only Mike Gesicki above him on the depth chart for receiving work. Draft capital? He was selected in the fourth round of the NFL Draft despite his final season being cut short and All being unable to athletically test, which, by the way, his film more than confirms he is PLENTY athletic. Analytical profile? All has ranked top-ten in yards per route run in each of the last two collegiate seasons in which he was healthy enough to garner at least 20 targets (per PFF). Oh, also, he ranked first in yards per route run and eighth in PFF receiving grade against man coverage (among all tight ends last year with at least ten man coverage targets). All is a wondrous gift that the dynasty community is giving you this year by letting him slip in drafts. SMASH THE DRAFT BUTTON in the late second round or early third round of rookie drafts if he's there (he will be).
