This year’s rookie class of tight ends isn’t the deepest class, but unlike most year’s this one has plenty of two-way traditional tight ends. Traditional tight ends tend to see the field a lot more as they are good at blocking and catching the ball, so they have use on every down. There is a good chance that two or three of these players will not see the field right away as sometimes tight ends struggle as they need to perform well in two worlds. This is a quick peak as to where I feel they compare against each other and this may change dramatically after the NFL Draft. To get more detailed insights, please read their individual scouting reports.
1. Eric Ebron, North Carolina
He is my favorite tight end of this class. Ebron has a big catch radius, great hands, and lines up all over the field. The tight end dealt with double teams his entire college career and was still highly productive. Even though he plays like a big receiver, Ebron can block well enough to stay on the field three downs. He could vault up to a dynasty TE1 this year.
