Conference: Missouri Valley
40 Time: 4.65
Biography: Used as a rotational starter the past three seasons. All-Conference selection since his junior year. Senior totals included 24/405/3 after 18/358/5 as a junior.
Positives: "Tall, athletic tight end prospect with a large amount of upside. Fluid releasing off the line, plays with good knee bend, and easily moves about the field. Shows a lot of quickness in his overall game, runs solid routes, and easily adjusts or gets vertical to make the reception. Runs laterally with speed, consistently gets into the secondary creating mismatches, and easily makes the reception in stride. Finds the open spot in the defense and extends his hands to offer the quarterback a target. Displays soft hands."
Negatives: Lacks functional football strength and gets minimal movement as a blocker. Blocks with a narrow base. Unnecessarily leaves his feet to make the reception on occasion.
Analysis: Oordt is a sensational athlete who struggled to see consistent starting action at Northern Iowa due to the depth of talent in the program. He's a top developmental prospect who should see the field early in his NFL career as a second tight end and eventually grow to the top man on the depth chart.
