Eubanks, a senior tight end, came to Michigan at 236 pounds. He checked in this year at 6-foot-5, 256 pounds, or in other words, the same height and four pounds smaller than Travis Kelce of the NFL’s Kansas City Chiefs.
Athletically speaking, that means Eubanks can line up next to a tackle and block. It means he can split out wide and run a route. It means he’s probably bigger than most defensive backs and faster than most linebackers, which in turn means that when defensive coordinators prepare for the Wolverines, they need to spend time figuring out how to deal with Nick Eubanks.
