Stanford TE Zach Ertz might hear his name called near the end of the first round in the NFL Draft. However, he is basically considered a wide receiver due to his poor blocking ability according to one NFL scout. "I guess it depends on the team," a scout said Sunday, March 3. "To me, he's a big, possession wide receiver. That's what he is. You put him out there, and it's like having three wide receivers on the field. He can't block at all. He has just average speed for the position, but he does run great routes, and there is something to be said for that."
