Funk's an intriguing late-round prospect in the 2021 NFL Draft that should have some teams interested in bringing him into their building. He doesn't show great vision in between the tackles and he needs to work on improving his footwork. His feet can get a little wild, which prevents him from being able to make sharp cuts in between the tackles or out in the open field. Decent burst for his size, but works better when he's able to build up a head of steam versus being shifty in small windows. Struggles to throttle down his momentum in the open field and this could be due to his feet getting out in front of him. Willing to lower his shoulder and engage with defenders, but doesn't have the pure size to bring much overall power to the table. Fantastic speed when he's able to get out into the open field. Doesn't have great burst, but somehow finds a second gear after the initial 10-yard and has fantastic straight line speed. Decent contact balance and shows that he's able to keep his weight and momentum in check if he's making movements out in the open field. Good pass-catcher. Limited sample size on film, but didn't show a natural ability in the instances. Certainly not a liability, but it's not going to be the focal point of his game. Good in pass protection and able to diagnose where the pressure is coming from and meet them at the hole. Keeps his head up and textbook form. Overall, Funk might have to start out on special teams and work his way up a depth chart, but the overall talent is there to turn into something down the road.
