Noah Fant Scouting Report

STRENGTHS: Noah Fant is one of those matchup nightmares that causes so many problems for the opposition…Fant has the quickness and route running ability to excel on a vast route tree…plays well through contact…defenders have to make a ‘business decision’ when trying to tackle Noah Fant in the open field…too fast for LB to cover, too physical for defensive backs…worked out incredibly well at the Scouting Combine…the athleticism and upside is evident…

WEAKNESSES: Where his teammate T.J. Hockenson excels as a blocker—Noah Fant fails…he doesn’t play with the proper leverage nor does he have the functional strength to be a good in-line blocker…not a complete player…will have to be used specifically in the slot or out wide…

COMP: Evan Engram

OVERALL: Noah Fant originally resided at the top of the 2019 TE class, only to be knocked down a peg by his teammate at Iowa, T.J. Hockenson. Noah Fant is a TE that fits the modern day NFL. Teams are always looking for chess pieces in order to put the defense on the…well…defensive. Needs some refinement on his hands…far too many drops which knocks him down some…Noah Fant is not going to help you in the run game, but he can do virtually everything else. I would anticipate hearing Noah Fant’s name called in the mid-late 1st round of the 2019 NFL Draft.
