Bio: 
Three-year starter who earned Second Team All-MAC honors and caught 34 passes for 394 yards and four touchdowns in 2017. Named Third Team All-MAC and made nine catches for 112 yards and one touchdown as a junior. Started every game in 2015 and recorded two receptions for 22 yards. Played fullback as a true freshman before moving to tight end.
Pos: 
Solid tight end prospect who could be a No. 3 at the next level. Displays dependable hands, keeps plays in bounds after the catch and works to pick up positive yardage. Nicely adjusts to errant throws, consistently snatches the ball with his hands and shows strength running after the catch. Strong at the point, stays square as a blocker and keeps his feet moving in pass protection. Displays outstanding vision and gives effort.
Neg: 
Shows average quickness and literally no burst. One-speed tight end who cannot split the seam.
Analysis: 
Ernsberger is a tight end who does the little things well but does not stand out in any single aspect. He has enough pass-catching skill and blocking strength to line up as a third tight end at the next level.
