They're terms that I find 1000 times cooler than "H-Back" or "Move" Tight End...but that's me!!
The most compelling Attributes of a Tight End, in the 21st Century, are, in my view, and in no particular order:
Blocking ~ Core Strength, Drive Power, Fluidity, and Combat
Release ~ How Adeptly he employs Burst, Core Strength, Fluidity, & Combat to Dust Off the Defender
Routing ~ How Adeptly ~ Crisply, Intelligently, and Reliably ~ he Runs the Route Tree
Separation ~ Fluidity & Ricochet ~ Explosiveness out'f'is Breaks
Catching ~ Reliability & Technique
Navigation ~ How well he Navigates the Field in Pursuit of Yards After Catch
Release ~ Strong. Decent Burst off the Line, but where he's good is with'is Core Strength & Paw Power in Combat.
Routing ~ Adept. Not much Tape, there, but from what I see he's comfortable Working the Field.
Separation ~ Adept. Horrific "40" Speed, but decent Burst, and sufficient Fluidity to find Space.
Catching ~ Strong. Really good Hands & good sense of Timing in HighPointing.
Navigation ~ Good. Reasonably Fluid, and really, really Tough.
Justice Cunningham has a total of 50 Catches in 4 Years with the Cocks, and a total of 1 TouchDown.
Ergo, he's 18,000 miles Under The Radar, based entirely on not being employed as a Receiver by Coach Spurrier.
Justice Cunningham is an outstanding Blocker ~ I would say the 2nd most adept Blocking Tight End in the Draft, behind Travis Kelce. And even though he's got lousy "40" Time ~ as if I give a rat's ass ~ the fact is that when they actually throw it to'm, he Releases reliably, Routes surprisingly well, can get open quite consistently, and is an adept and actually somewhat athletic Receiver who can break a Tackle or three.
In other words: whether he's blocking or receiving, he'll kick ass, and he'll Move The Chains.
That, need I repeat it, is what Championships are ultimately made of.
