Scouting Report (3/27/2020) Gage Wilcox has good height with adequate bulk but will need to continue to add size. However, he looks to have a broad, lengthy frame that can support additional good mass with further physical development. He displays good, wiry strength with room to improve as he continues physically mature.
Gage flashes good initial burst and enough top-end speed to stretch the middle seams vertically. Will need to increase his route tree but has a good feel for soft spots working against zone coverage and is a solid route runner at this stage. He displays good timing and leaping ability to compete for jump balls downfield and in the red zone. He will consistently fight for yards and does not go down easy.
Gage displays good hands with the ability to extend and catch the ball away from his body, though can let it get into his frame on occasion. He flashes the ability to use his frame to shield defenders and displays good body control to adjust to the ball and has very good awareness when working along the sideline.
This will be an area for improvement as he continues to fill out and add strength but looks to give effort and shows good toughness. When he can gain positioning with his hands and drives his knees can generate good push but needs to continue to improve hand placement and watch pad level. With added bulk and functional strength, we feel he has the skillset to develop into a complete tight end.
