Michigan tight end Nick Eubanks signed by Dallas Cowboys

Eubanks will have a chance to find a more consistent role than he did in college.

COLLEGE FOOTBALL: NOV 17 Indiana at Michigan

The Dallas Cowboys signed Michigan Wolverines tight end Nick Eubanks as an undrafted free agent following the conclusion of the 2021 NFL Draft, per media reports.

Eubanks appeared in 36 games at Michigan and was voted a team captain by his Wolverine teammates ahead of the 2020 season. He earned honorable mention All-Big Ten honors in 2019 and finished his career in Ann Arbor with 45 catches for 578 yards and six touchdowns.

Scouting Report:

Eubanks has decent speed for the position, he’ll be best served to head to a team that can put him in motion as an h-back and match him up one-on-one with a linebacker in coverage. Eubanks will need to improve as a blocker and route runner if he’s going to stick in the pros. Despite some needed room for growth in various areas, a team could still take a chance on Eubanks in the fifth round, but there’s also a shot he goes undrafted. Speed sells, and although his speed on film doesn’t seem as fast as his pro day forty time, the time of 4.59 will be having teams give him an extra look that he wouldn’t receive if he was a tad slower.

The first round of the draft was held on Thursday night with the second and third rounds on for Friday. The event concludes from Cleveland, Ohio with the fourth through seventh rounds on Saturday.
