Scouting Report
Listed at tight end, Eldridge is more of a jack of all trades on the offensive line, having also started at center and guard during his senior season. He would have seen fewer snaps at tight end had Sooners star Jermaine Gresham not suffered a season-ending knee injury prior to the opener. Eldridge caught a total of 13 passes for 98 yards and one score during his four-year career, but his value lies nearly entirely in his blocking ability. He is big, strong, powerful and has an excellent work ethic. His biggest negative is a lack of speed, which not only inhibits his ability to be a receiver, but also can make him slow off the line and give him occasional trouble blocking quicker defenders. Durability is also a concern. Eldridge missed the end of his senior season due to a stress fracture in his neck, which he says has fully healed. Eldridge should get a look in some team's training camp, but whether he's drafted appears iffy. He'll garner interest from teams looking for a blocker to fill in at tight end or other spots along the line in emergency situations.
