Elk Rapids’ Trautman earns all-rookie honors
Pro Football Focus, a respected publication dedicated to the NFL, named Elk Rapids native and alumni Adam Trautman to its All-Rookie team for his performance with the New Orleans Saints this season.
Trautman was one of three rookie tight ends who saw significant playing time but made his mark felt while having played the least amount of the three.
Trautman didn’t get a ton of opportunities in the passing game, but he did take advantage of the looks that came his way. He caught 15 of his 16 targets for 171 yards, most of which came from Hall of Fame bound quarterback Drew Brees.
Where Trautman really impressed was as a run-blocker, though. His 86.9 run-blocking grade on the season led all qualifying tight ends, regardless of experience in the league.
