Super Bowl 52 champion Zach Ertz clocks in as the 68th best player in the NFL as voted on by his peers. It is a remarkable feat as this is only his fifth season. He has displayed a certain kind of toughness that Philadelphia Eagles fans appreciate.
Joining this list of elite talent is long overdue and something Zach takes great pride in. There are not many tight ends that use a combination of their height and precise route running ability to find the soft spot in zone defense like No. 86.
His peers have been vocal about how efficient he is especially in the the red zone.
“I think Zach is probably a top three tight end.”
“He’s a technician, he takes pride in his routes and manipulating in different ways.”
“He poses a challenge for defensive backs.”
The City of Brotherly Love has welcomed ZE into their family and he loved nothing more than showing Philadelphia how much he cares by scoring the game winning touchdown in Super Bowl 52.
