Scouting Report

OVERVIEW

A four-star recruit from Tampa, Tate dealt with injuries to start and end his time at Florida State. He played just six games as a true freshman and did not record a catch. After a promising junior season (25 catches, 409 yards, six TDs), Tate had a strong junior campaign, hauling in 40 catches for 549 yards and 10 TDs in 12 games despite the Seminoles losing starting quarterback Deondre Francois in Week 1. Tate separated his shoulder in the final game of his college career and decided to forgo his senior season to enter the 2018 NFL Draft.

ANALYSIS

Tate's size is obviously his biggest asset. He's long limbed with big hands. He does well using his large frame to wall off defensive backs on slants and comebacks, but wasn't asked to run an expansive route tree. He lacks the speed and athleticism to get consistent separation but does have sneaky quickness coming out of his breaks.

Tate improved from 2016 to '17 catching the ball away from his body and using his hands. He has strong, reliable hands even while being contested. Not much wiggle after the catch but runs hard and is tough to bring down. He does well using his hands to get some breathing room late in routes.

If you're looking for a burner, Tate isn't your guy. He has size and knows how to use it. If he's in 1-on-1 coverage, he's open. He'll need to learn the nuances of the position and improve his raw route-running, but he should be a strong red-zone threat at the next level.
