The Philadelphia Eagles have strengthened their offensive arsenal by selecting SMU tight end Grant Calcaterra with their final selection in the 2022 NFL Draft
Calcaterra moved from Oklahoma to SMU. He is great at both blocking passes and catching passes, but his history of concussions may have hurt his overall performance.
The fact that he was named captain during his lone season at SMU is evidence of his leadership, which the Eagles highly value. If Grant Calcaterra had not had a history of concussions, he would have been rated higher as a pass catcher and would have been selected a couple of rounds earlier.
During the 2017 season, Calcaterra started all 12 games for the Mustangs and finished with 38 receptions, 465 receiving yards, and four touchdowns on 62 targets. He also had two drops. Additionally, he had a PFF pass-block grade of 72.8, which was tied for sixth place on the team. But he needs to improve his run-blocking skills, as he only got a 48.5 PFF run-blocking grade in 2021.
