Scout.com Analysis

Cade Brewer is a modern spread tight end prospect who can play the H/Y roles in today's more wide-open offense. He's a sound blocker for his size, but does not possess traditional inline tight end frame potential. That said, he's solidly built and physical in the run game. As a receiver, Brewer can line up in a variety of spots, including out wide. He's great at high-pointing the ball and making plays in traffic. He's always dangerous in run-after-catch opportunities. Overall, Brewer is a quality spread tight end prospect with the ability to play at the Power Five conference level. - Gabe Brooks, Scout.com Midlands Recruiting Analyst.
