2021 NFL Draft Prospect: Cary Angeline, TE, North Carolina State University

Cary Angeline NC State 2021 NFL Draft
North Carolina State tight end Cary Angeline is a huge red zone threat and will get a shot in the NFL. He is good in open space and runs great routes.

Cary Angeline is an old school tight end. He is a 6’7, 250 pound pass catcher that runs solid routes and has soft hands. He is not going to burn you on a big play, but he is a quarterbacks best friend when it comes to short yardage.

Angeline is a huge target in the redzone, and has made a living for the Wolfpack there. The Chester Springs, Pennsylvania native has been impressive in 2020. He has 6 touchdown passes on just 18 receptions. His longest play of the year went for 32 yards which was his touchdown reception against Virginia this year.

The former Southern California transfer has been solid for NC State the past couple years. Last year as a red-shirt junior, he was an honorable mention as an All-ACC player, and earned the top receiving award from the team. He scored 5 touchdowns in 2019.

Overall, Angeline is not a guy that people are going to talk about much because he does not have the major athletic ability, and he does not have the huge stats, but if you are looking for a consistent player in the redzone, Angeline is the guy you want.

NFL Draft Diamonds Scouting Notes

Cary Angeline is not a Travis Kelce or a George Kittle, he is more of a Lee Smith. A big guy with great hands and a reliable pass catcher. Will he be drafted? I am not sure, but he definitely caught my attention. He is a big boy, who is decent in blocking. He will have to improve there if he wants to hang around the league for a long time like Lee Smith, but when it comes to being a redzone target, you have to love what he can do. I would not be shocked if a team took him late because of his ability to score when it is most needed. – Damond Talbot, NFL Draft Diamonds, Owner
