Notre Dame TE Tommy Tremble can do it all. He's going to be a big time weapon at the next level. I love his game.— Justin M (@JustinM_NFL) February 27, 2021
He's met/will meet virtually w/ the #49ers, #Cardinals, #Broncos, #Saints, #Jets, #Washington, #Colts, #Packers, #Patriots, #Falcons, #Chargers, #Titans and #Bills.
The 6’4”, 248 pound junior tight end had 19 receptions for 218 receiving yards (11.5 ypr. avg.) during 10 games in 2020—earning All-ACC honorable mention.
Tommy Tremble projects as an F-tight end in the NFL—a flex weapon that will be best served in an offense that doesn’t charge him with playing with his hand in the dirt. Tremble is a plus athlete who offers the long speed and agility to be dynamic as a pass-catcher, but his production to this point has yet to make the leap that you’d want to see to feel confident that he’s going to develop into an upper-level tight end at some point. Tremble has spent his career at Notre Dame caught behind the likes of Cole Kmet and 2020 freshman star Michael Mayer; he’s been the TE2 who is charged with moving around the set or blocking on the perimeter to set up runs and screens to the outside. Tremble’s potential is significant and his effort as a role player has been admirable, so you’ll feel fairly good that Tremble has the right makeup to stick as a developmental player while working himself into a more prominent role as he continues to mature.
Here’s the recent draft ‘buzz’ on Tremble:
TE Tommy Tremble is a stud. Big-time blocker and better pass-catcher than his stat line.— Dane Brugler (@dpbrugler) January 8, 2021
This year's TE draft class has a true star at the top (Pitts), but I really like some of the options (like Tremble) in the 2nd-4th range. https://t.co/9BcwTW5dVL
Tremble is pretty easily one of the top-5 TE prospects in this class. Bulldozer as a blocker. A lot of ability as a pass-catcher. His best football is in front of him. https://t.co/WY7bgzeQv7— Dane Brugler (@dpbrugler) February 12, 2021
Had 3 drops this season, which needs to be better. But some will assume he's not a pass catcher when they see 19 catches, 0 TDs. He's a better receiver than his statline.— Dane Brugler (@dpbrugler) January 8, 2021
One of my favorite mid-round connections in this draft class:— Matt Miller (@nfldraftscout) February 5, 2021

Tommy Tremble isn't a powerful, dominating blocker. But he is effective and very good in space.— Marcus Mosher (@Marcus_Mosher) February 17, 2021
Only 20-years old and still growing into his frame.
I really like Notre Dame TE Tommy Tremble (#24) on Day 3.— Marcus Mosher (@Marcus_Mosher) February 17, 2021
The receiving game needs some work, but he can really block, especially in space. pic.twitter.com/0n4p9FDu25

One of the things I like the best about Tommy Tremble is that Notre Dame used him all over the formation. pic.twitter.com/44kSEvvpjc— Marcus Mosher (@Marcus_Mosher) February 17, 2021

Notre Dame had success running its counter play all night and this was one of the smaller gains, but TE Tommy Tremble (24) deserves recognition for this block. pic.twitter.com/MSWNBaTH2z— Matt Freeman (@mattfreemanISD) October 13, 2020

Tommy Tremble— Jake Morley (@JacobMorley) February 22, 2021
- Underutilized in the passing game at ND.
- Wants to steal your soul in the run game
- May be a psychopath. (which is cool)

Tommy Tremble is a ferocious blocker. Dude takes souls WEEKLY. Top 5 TE in this class and should be a Day 2 pick.— Nick Farabaugh (@FarabaughFB) January 31, 2021
Tremble is gonna be a good TE for a while in the league. pic.twitter.com/zccZS1mv2R
This isn’t a deep TE in class once you get into the later portions of Day 3, but there’s glimmers of solid talent that’ll be there on Day 2 into Early Day 3:— Nick Farabaugh (@FarabaughFB) February 24, 2021
Tremble is a pretty athletic tight end, who’s already a major asset in the running game—as an incredibly physical and exceptional blocker.
He has the versatility to potentially play all over the Colts offense, although he’s not naturally suited with his hand in the dirt as a classic in-line blocker.
He could replace free agent Trey Burton’s role within the Colts’ tight end heavy offense.
While Tremble is still developing and was underutilized as a receiver with the Fighting Irish, he’s shown the athletic upside and flashes of being a dynamic weapon at the tight end position—with the ability to make plays over the middle of the field.
However, he’s still developing in that regard.
Without a 3rd round pick from the Carson Wentz trade, the Colts would probably either have to land Tremble with their 2nd or 4th round pick (unless the franchise accumulates more picks with potential trade downs—which is always a possibility).
Given his upside, Tremble is exactly the type of youthful talent with immediate impact ability as a blocker and intriguing raw potential as a receiver, that the Colts could very well look to add at the tight end position in April’s NFL Draft.
