 Update

  2017 AFCA FCS COACHES' FIRST TEAM ALL-AMERICAN: TE Dallas Goedert, 6-5 260, Sr., South Dakota State, John Stiegelmeier Britton, S.D. (Britton-Hecla),...Pacing the Jackrabbit contingent was senior tight end Dallas Goedert, who repeated as a first-team selection. During the recently completed 2017 season, Goedert finished as the team leader with 72 receptions and 1,111 receiving yards, while adding seven touchdown catches. His receiving total leads all Division I tight ends – FCS and FBS – this season. For his career, Goedert ranked third in receptions at SDSU with 198, fourth in receiving yards with 2,988 and sixth with 21 touchdown receptions. Goedert has been a unanimous All-America selection each of the past two seasons and has been honored as a first-team selection in 2017 by The Associated Press, Football Championship Subdivision Athletics Directors Association, Phil Steele Publications and STATS. - South Dakota State Football

 Overview

  A three-year starter at South Dakota State, Goedert thrived in the Jackrabbit’s spread offense, splitting his time inline and detached, and was a mismatch vs. every defense he faced in the Missouri Valley Conference – he will be the first offensive player from South Dakota State to be drafted since 11-year veteran TE Steve Heiden in 1999 (third round, 69th overall to the San Diego Chargers).

He is a big, physical athlete with the body control and footwork of a much smaller player, making himself available in his routes with his fluid adjustment skills.
Goedert needs to improve his efficiency as a route runner and his blocking technique requires refinement, but his deficiencies as a blocker are based more on inexperience rather than inability (basically, he was too good of a receiving threat for the SDSU coaches to keep at the line of scrimmage). Overall, Goedert has the physical skill-set, dependable ball skills and motivated make-up to develop into a starting NFL tight end capable of pushing for Pro Bowl consideration.

BACKGROUND
A no-star tight end recruit out of high school, Dallas Goedert (named after the Dallas Cowboys, although he grew up a Green Bay Packers’ fan) was a multi-sport marvel growing up (mostly swimming, soccer, basketball and football), focusing on basketball until his senior season at Britton-Hecla when he decided to put all his effort into football. He played nine-man football in high school and was the best player on the team, switching between quarterback, running back and wide receiver on offense, depending on the play-call, also playing linebacker and safety on defense and performing all the kicking, punting and returning duties. At a small high school (under 150 students total),

Goedert went overlooked as a recruit, receiving only one scholarship offer to Division-II Northern State in South Dakota. He had higher goals, however, and decided to walk on at FCS-level South Dakota State, redshirting in 2013. Goedert started three games as a redshirt freshman and posted eight catches for 100 yards in 2014. He became a full-time starter as a sophomore and finished second on the team with 26 receptions for 484 yards and six touchdowns, earning First Team All-MVFC honors. Goedert had his best statistical season as a junior, setting a new single-season school record with 92 catches. His 1,293 receiving yards and 11 touchdowns in 2016 were also SDSU records for a tight end, earning Unanimous All-American and First Team All-MVFC honors. Goedert returned for his senior year and posted 67 catches for 1,068 yards and six touchdowns, again earning FCS All-American honors.


 Analysis

  STRENGTHS
Loose athlete for the position. Quick release off the line with above average seam speed. Uses nuance in his routes to stack defenders and gain a step on vertical patterns. Soft hands. Expands his catch radius to snare the ball away from his body with ease. Comfortable in traffic, routinely making grabs with defenders hanging on his back. Uses his body well to shield defenders. NFL-level tracking skills and hand-eye coordination. Athleticism allows him to be a YAC threat, setting up moves to make defenders miss.

Workable frame to add weight and get stronger – was only 205 pounds when he arrived at SDSU and wasn’t part of a workout program until college. Boasts the frame and strength profile to develop as a blocker. Matured into one of the team’s best workers, on and off the field, the last five years – “he’s obviously got a lot of natural gifts, but it’s his work ethic and football IQ that have made the difference.” – SDSU tight ends coach Luke Schleusner. Former walk on who worked his way to be in this position – earned a 40% scholarship as a redshirt freshman, 70% scholarship as a sophomore and 100% for his final two seasons. Above average production, setting several Missouri Valley Football Conference tight end records. – Dane Brugler 12/12/2017

WEAKNESSES
Needs to tighten his footwork and eliminate wasted body movements at the top of routes – likes to get a head start in/out of his breaks. Tends to lose focus at the catch point, prematurely taking his eyes away from the ball, leading to drops. Unique blend of power and athleticism as a ballcarrier, but will leave some yards on the field and needs to improve his decision-making.

Shows a baseline understanding of blocking technique and awareness, but needs time to hone these skills to better sustain. Didn’t miss a game the past four seasons, but was hindered at times due to minor injuries, including an ankle issue that knocked him out of a 2017 playoff game (Dec. 2017). Almost all of his experience came against FCS-level talent – faced three FBS opponents in his career (none in 2017), including an impressive performance at TCU (Sept. 2016) with five catches for 96 yards and one touchdown. – Dane Brugler 12/12/17

COMPARES TO: Travis Kelce, Kansas City Chiefs - Kelce is one of the best young tight ends in the NFL so it takes an impressive prospect to earn this comparison - and Goedert is deserving. His athleticism and body control for a player his size creates mismatches before and after the catch.

IN OUR VIEW: Despite all of his experience coming at the FCS-level, Goedert has the physical skill-set, dependable ball skills and motivated make-up to develop into a starting NFL tight end. He has Pro Bowls in his future.

 Draft Scout Player News
01/22/18 - 2018 Senior Bowl: 7 Potential Breakout Players: Dallas Goedert, TE, South Dakota State, #86, South...The 2018 draft isn't nearly as loaded at tight end as last year, when three players -- OJ Howard (No. 19, Tampa Bay), Evan Engram (No. 23, New York Giants) and David Njoku (No. 29, Cleveland) -- earned first-round picks, the first two cementing their stock in Mobile. The 6-3, 255-pound Goedert is NFLDraftScout.com's top-rated senior at the position, checking in behind only Oklahoma's Mark Andrews, the reigning Mackey Award winner as the nation's top tight end. The physical and athletic Goedert (pronounced God-urt) caught 72 passes for 1,111 yards and seven touchdowns in 2017. - Rob Rang, NFLDraftScout.com
01/19/18 - TE Dallas Goedert has the physical skill-set, dependable ball skills and football character that could land in him in round one. With almost all his experience coming against FCS-competition, how will he match up against better talent at the Senior Bowl? Goedert is a big, physical athlete with the body control and footwork of a much smaller player, making himself available in his routes with natural adjustment skills. There won't be a linebacker at the Senior Bowl who will be able to cover him, and the safeties will have a tough time matching his aggressive play. With a productive week, Goedert can lock down his status as the No. 1 senior tight end, ahead of Penn State's Mike Gesicki, Indiana's Ian Thomas and others. -- Dane Brugler, NFLDraftScout.com
12/22/17 - 2017 WALTER CAMP FCS ALL-AMERICA TEAM: TE Dallas Goedert, South Dakota State,...Goedert finished as the team leader with 72 receptions and 1,111 receiving yards, while adding seven touchdown catches in 2017. His receiving total leads all Division I tight ends - FCS and FBS - this season. For his career, Goedert ranked third in receptions at SDSU with 198, fourth in receiving yards with 2,988 and sixth with 21 touchdown receptions. - South Dakota State Football
12/20/17 - 2017 AFCA FCS COACHES' FIRST TEAM ALL-AMERICAN: TE Dallas Goedert, 6-5 260, Sr., South Dakota State, John Stiegelmeier Britton, S.D.

11/21/17 - The top "small school" prospect in the 2018 draft class, South Dakota State redshirt senior TE Dallas Goedert (6-3, 255, 4.81, #86) recorded 11 catches on Saturday with eight of those receptions resulting in a first down. He leads all tight ends (FCS or FBS) in catches (60) and receiving yards (966) this season. Goedert, who has accepted his Senior Bowl invitation, is in consideration to be the first tight end drafted in April. - Dane Brugler, NFLDraftScout.com
