Analysis
Although Escobar did not record the fastest 40-yard dash time, the rest of his combine performance was very impressive. He was the second-best amongst the tight ends in both the three-cone drill and the 20-yard shuttle, and ranked in the middle of the pack in the other tests.

What distanced Escobar from the the group was his performance in the various position drills, where he displayed his incredible ball-catching skills and had NFL analyst Mike Mayock raving about his hands.

“Trust me, Rich, you’re going to get to know this name in the next few months,” Mayock said to fellow broadcaster Rich Eisen during the combine. “Watching him catch a football, it’s like ballet. I mean this kid’s got strong hands and he goes up for the ball.”

Escobar will have a chance to better his 40-yard dash time at San Diego State’s pro day on March 19, but it won’t be too much of a concern to NFL scouts. His game film is all the proof they need to see that he is fast enough to play at the next level.

Overall, Escobar had a solid performance at the combine, and although he didn’t shock scouts with jaw-dropping numbers, he likely secured his position as one of the top three tight ends available.

Projection
2nd-3rd round
