Eagles All-22 film overview: Jaquiski Tartt is an especially bodily participant

The Eagles signed a security! I feel all of us thought the Eagles wanted yet one more participant in that place and the Eagles clearly agreed. Let’s reduce to the chase, it is enjoyable as a result of Tartt is an especially bodily participant who I guess plenty of Eagles followers are going to essentially like. Tartt is quantity 3 in all of the clips.


All stats are from PFF and are for final season solely. He has years of stats out there however I nonetheless assume it is best to deal with the previous yr. All figures solely embody safeties with 20% of snaps performed, or 98 gamers in complete.

– 61st grade PFF, ranks 56th.

– 47 tackles, ranks 52nd.

– 12 misfires, ranks sixteenth highest.

– 15% missed sort out charge, ranks twenty seventh highest.

– 20 ‘stops’, ranks twenty third.

– Allowed 136 yards of protection, ranks 82nd.

– Allowed 8 yards per reception, ranks 93rd highest (which is admittedly good!)

– 0 interceptions, and solely has 4 in 7 years.


+ Very versatile as a safety. Can play single excessive, split-safety or as a extra “conventional” secure fort within the field. Good at turning late which can be crucial on this defence.

+ An clever participant who acknowledges performs effectively in entrance of him, particularly in zone protection. Very instinctive, we really feel that he has performed plenty of video games.

+ Distinctive in protection in opposition to the run. Can play very effectively within the field and nearly appears to be like like an LB at occasions.

+ Excellent for happening extraordinarily shortly when enjoying deep secure or break up secure. It is extraordinarily necessary for a protection just like the Eagles who need to maintain the sport forward of them.

+ Will get bodily protection within the man and adapts effectively to huge bodily tight ends that are not the quickest.

+ A extremely arduous hitter. An old style “punisher” that may make receivers assume twice earlier than catching the ball within the center.


– Typically a bit reckless as a tackler. I disagree with PFF on his missed sort out charge based mostly on what I’ve seen, however he’ll fly over gamers typically.

– Higher with the sport forward of him and will be caught off guard at occasions.

– Harm points have held him again over time. The best way he performs the sport means contact accidents can be a problem.

– Does not have the power to play males’s protection a lot. I wasn’t requested to do this a lot final yr, which was most likely deliberate.

– He will be overwhelmed in protection and will do extra to assist his cornerback typically when enjoying break up security protection. He appears to be like a little bit clunky in a few of his strikes when redirecting on cowl.


Tartt is a good instance of a participant you could watch and never simply watch the stats. Once you have a look at the PFF stats above, you get the concept he is a little bit of a free tackler however excels at protection. It’s merely not true. The stats present that as a result of he isn’t being requested a lot in males’s protection and it is arduous responsible gamers so simply in zone protection. Anyway, I do not actually belief statistics on the subject of secure playing.

Tartt is without doubt one of the most bodily gamers I’ve seen shortly. He’ll immediately turn out to be the Eagles’ hardest hitter and produce an perspective and physicality to protection from the secure place that we have not seen in a very long time. I really like gamers like that (who would not?) and I feel each crew would want not less than one participant who performs the sport like Tartt does. You possibly can’t have too many gamers placing their our bodies on the road like Tartt does, however there’s at all times room for a pair, even within the fashionable NFL. I did not see any dumb photographs that brought about penalties, all photographs felt arduous however authorized.

Harm points have been an actual concern all through his profession, but when he stays wholesome I suppose he has a great likelihood of enjoying plenty of snaps. Somebody requested within the feedback final week that I break down Epps and Harris, so I am going to try this for the subsequent 2 weeks, however my hunch is Tartt will begin if he is wholesome, possibly on Harris. I’d change my thoughts after watching Epps and Harris in additional depth, however I feel Epps and Tartt may very well be a great security duo.

One other factor I needed to notice will not be a power or a weak spot, however he had a very good relationship with Jimmie Ward. You could possibly actually see on the pitch how they celebrated video games with one another and talked after many video games. I actually appreciated seeing that since you might inform they each understood one another. Hopefully if he begins subsequent yr he can construct a robust relationship with whoever begins reverse him, as a result of relationships and understanding how others play is a crucial a part of defence. Tartt and Ward are very completely different gamers however collectively they made an excellent beginning pair.

The Eagles wanted a security and so they received a great security in June, which is admittedly all you’ll be able to ask for. I feel with out the harm points he would not be out there this late within the offseason, however I feel he is a participant who can be thrilling to observe subsequent yr and assist this Eagles protection enhance. typically.
