Draft Scout News
11/19/14 - TE Zach Ertz has been getting fewer snaps. He played 64.5 percent of the snaps in the first four games, but has played only 41.7 percent of them in the last six. In an attempt to jump-start the run game, Chip Kelly has been using Brent Celek rather than Ertz in most of the team's three-wide receiver sets.
"I get open as well as anybody in the game," said Ertz. "The blocking's coming along well. It's not a negative aspect of my game any more. But Coach makes the final decision. Brent is one of the best blocking tight ends in the game."
10/15/14 - TE Zach Ertz has seen his playing time go down the last two weeks. But he had three catches for 47 yards and a touchdown in Sunday's win over the Giants. The last two games, Ertz has been used mainly on third down and in passing sets. "Obviously, I want to play all three downs,'' he said. "But third down has been the down where I am able to go in and know consistently I'm going to be able to make plays for the team.''
10/12/14 - TE Zach Ertz is a potential star. He only caught three passes, but they went for 47 yards, and a per-catch average of 15.7 is excellent for a player in his position. Ertz also made a diving catch on his 15-yard touchdown reception in the first quarter. He has replaced veteran Brent Celek as the Eagles' top pass-catching tight end.
12/04/13 - TE Zach Ertz was a full practice participant Wednesday despite being listed on the injury report with a shoulder injury.
12/02/13 - TE Zach Ertz has 26 catches, 18 for first downs.
