Player Summary:

Fifth year Junior. TE starter. Versatile – has aligned at TE, I-WR, and O-WR spots.  Good TE prospect with a lot of potential.  Possesses good size and measurables for the position.  Good run blocker, a good receiver, and strong in pass protection.  As a run blocker, he is good.  Is very effective with running his feet on contact and driving defenders off the ball.  Has good inside hand placement and ability to latch.  Can chip v. pass rushing DLs and release into the flat.  Is an effective run blocker also when he is aligned out on the perimeter.  As a receiver, he is good.  Needs to work on separation as a route runner and develop more burst off the LOS, but caught nearly everything thrown to him in the games viewed.  Has a wide catch radius with the ability to high-point the ball.  Can go up and win contested catches.  Size presents matchup problems, especially around the GL.  Doesn’t run away from anybody, but can leap over defenders after the catch, keep pushing vertically, and lower his shoulder on contact.  Gets wide open frequently but his quarterback often misses him.  In pass protection, he is also good.  Shows ability to sustain rushers and effective hand placement.  Stays balanced and plays with good posture.  Could widen his stance a little bit in pass pro.  Has one more year of eligibility due to COVID-19, but don’t see how staying would benefit him.  Has a high ceiling.

Power Statement:

Isaac is a good receiver, a good run blocker, and an effective pass protector.  He shows strong measurables for the position and also displays good fundamentals and technique.  He has a high ceiling and could develop into a high draft pick.
