Tyrie Cleveland 2020 NFL Draft Profile

Measureables: 6’2″ 205 LBs

If you are looking for stats or national attention, you won’t find it here with TC89. However, what you will find is one of the most underutililzed and underrated players in this draft. Cleveland is a 6’2″ 205 guy with game breaking speed who will block 100 yards down the field and make a game saving tackle on special teams. Florida had a stable of WRs so none of them wow with their stats but anyone who watched their games knows that this was a talented group. Cleveland is a 4 star recruit from Texas but found a home in Florida and definitely found a home in the hearts of Gator Nation. Over the past two months, I have had thousands from Gator Nation advocate for this kid. He was initially left off of the senior bowl roster but was a late addition and is catching everyones attention. The kid is just that talented. Look for him and teammate Van Jefferson to have awesome games Saturday.
