2020 Season Countdown: #31 Erick All

Name: Erick All
Height: 
6’4″
Weight: 
242 lbs.
High school: 
Fairfield (OH) Fairfield
Position: 
Tight end/wide receiver
Class: 
Sophomore
Jersey number:
 #83
Last year: 
I ranked All #62 and said he would be a backup tight end (LINK). He played in eleven games and made 1 catch for 10 yards.
TTB Rating:
 75

All was as advertised in 2019. He was skinny but a good blocker, which was good enough to get him on the field as the #4 tight end. He caught 1 pass for 10 yards in the loss to Penn State, but mostly he was just a guy used as a blocker near the goal line because the guys who are “better” than him don’t like to be physical. So Sean McKeon, Nick Eubanks, and Luke Schoonmaker caught the touchdowns and made the big plays, while All did the dirty work.

Now McKeon is off to the Dallas Cowboys as an undrafted free agent, and All is fighting with Schoonmaker to be the primary backup. (It will be interesting to see if Eubanks sticks around for another season in the spring/fall, but if he leaves, that could leave All or Schoonmaker as the starter.) I think All will end up as the #2 guy based mainly on his blocking. He has added significant size, and he reportedly has some of the best hands on the team, regardless of position.

Prediction: Backup tight end

I know it’s a little bit late in the game, but back in the spring, I didn’t have time to review all the senior film for Michigan’s 2019 signees and give them updated TTB Ratings. I did that during the 2019 Season Countdown, so here are the final TTB Ratings for the class of 2019.

S Daxton Hill: 100
He’s the best safety in the class, though it’s an unimpressive safety class overall.

RB Zach Charbonnet: 83 90
As long as he can get/stay healthy, Charbonnet has the potential to be a high draft pick in the future.

DT Chris Hinton, Jr.: 90
He should be an early contributor with high long-term upside.

2019 Season Countdown: #62 Erick All

Erick All

Name: Erick All
Height:
6’4″
Weight:
216 lbs.
High school:
Fairfield (OH) Fairfield
Position:
Tight end/wide receiver
Class:
Freshman
Jersey number:
#83
Last year:
All was a senior in high school (LINK). He caught 30 passes for 465 yards and 4 touchdowns.
TTB Rating:
75

All has had a very interesting trajectory so far during his short Michigan career. When he first committed, I assumed – along with others – that he would be a redshirt lock as a true freshman due to his size (216 lbs. as of this spring). Then when the spring rolled around, he was the most hyped early enrollee outside of Mike Sainristil.

Word coming out of Ann Arbor is that the coaches love All for his attitude and work ethic, and I can’t help thinking of Sean McKeon when I hear stuff like that. McKeon played in four games as a true freshman (2 catches for 10 yards), even though he was the #5 tight end in receptions (six tight ends caught passes but walk-on Michael Jocz only caught one). I don’t see All as being a size or speed mismatch, but the reward for being someone the coaches like could be some playing time in certain situations. I don’t see him being a standout at any point, but sometimes consistency is key.

Prediction: Backup tight end
