NFL Draft Position Breakdown – TE Edition

Position Outlook

Position Rank amongst different positions:

  • High-Finish Expertise – eleventh (of 11)
  • Depth – tenth
  • 1st Spherical Caliber Gamers – 0 (eleventh)
  • General – eleventh

It’s common that there the Tight Finish place isn’t stacked with expertise, however this 12 months’s class took that to the following degree. Other than McBride, there aren’t any prospects price getting excited over, and even drafting earlier than Day 3, and even he isn’t practically a 1st-round caliber prospect. Furthermore, the depth of this place is uninspiring. This isn’t the 12 months to draft Tight Ends.

High 5 Position Rating

  1. Trey McBride CSU – Full Scouting Report
  2. Charlie Kolar ISU – Full Scouting Report
  3. Isaiah Seemingly CC – Full Scouting Report
  4. Jeremy Ruckert OSU – Full Scouting Report
  5. Greg Dulcich UCLA – Full Scouting Report

McBride is the clear-cut TE1. The tier hole is huge after him, and all the remainder of this class will be tossed into the identical boat – upside dart-throws with restricted upside and obtrusive flaws.
If I have been to spotlight any of them, Kolar and Seemingly stood out to me, and have the likeliest possibilities to succeed of the bunch.

Greg Dulcich is a fan favourite, however he’s dropping in my rankings for a large number of causes

Rating Notes


  • Greg Dulcich UCLA – Extremely touted as an athlete with nice receiving capability and blocking. I noticed the other. A middling athlete given his measurement, with poor blocking capability and common receiving capability at greatest. Plus, he’s a lot too small to be a profitable NFL Tight Finish.
  • Jalen Wydermyer TA&M – A receiving Tight Finish who had many drops, can’t block to save lots of his life and had one of many worst Mix showings on this draft. Not solely is there nothing to be enthusiastic about, however there additionally isn’t even something to financial institution on.


  • Charlie Kolar ISU – Whereas he’s a bit undersized within the weight division, his peak looms tall at 6’6″, and he is a good receiving expertise. He isn’t a terrific blocker, so an argument will be made to play him as a Huge Receiver. Which will occur, however he presents offenses with a terrific mismatch capability out of the slot/inline.
  • Isaiah Seemingly CC – Regardless of a horrible pre-draft course of, Seemingly had good tape. I used to be very inspired by the skills he displayed, and his twitchiness, blocking, and receiving capability all seemed attractive. He’s a mission, however he presents upside.


  • Jelani Woods UVA – Woods is without doubt one of the 3 greatest athletes on this whole draft, and in line with RAS scores is essentially the most athletically gifted Tight Finish ever. His tape was nothing to put in writing house about, however that degree of athleticism is price a terrific deal.
  • Chase Allen ISU – When watching Iowa State tape, Allen constantly confirmed up. He popped off the display screen together with his huge measurement, and he impressed together with his good receiving and blocking capability. He’s slowly climbing larger up my rankings.

Greatest Risers

  • Jelani Woods UVA – As talked about, he is without doubt one of the freakiest athletes on this class. His Mix efficiency was an explosive show of upside.
  • Chigoziem Okonkwo MD – Regardless of being beforehand a non-factor on this draft, Chigo ran the quickest 40 of all of the Tight Ends. In a weak class, that’s all it’s essential get drafted.

Greatest Fallers

  • Jalen Wydermyer TA&M – Profiling as a receiving expertise who struggled with drops, Wydermyer wanted to indicate athleticism on the Mix. He did the precise reverse. In my ebook, he’s undraftable.
  • Isaiah Seemingly CC – Working an abysmal 4.8 40 didn’t assist Seemingly’s inventory in any respect. He additionally ran the slowest Shuttle on the Mix. Unhealthy athletic testings will knock you down draft boards, particularly after they’re as dangerous as Seemingly’s.

Last Projection

If any Tight Finish will get chosen within the 1st spherical, I shall be totally shocked. McBride might sneak his means in, however he doesn’t have the rank for the half. Nonetheless, there’s something to be stated a few participant being the one good participant in his class. That’ll increase him extremely up draft boards.
If some other Tight Finish will get taken within the 1st 2 rounds, the GM needs to be fired. Sure, these are all harsh statements, however anybody scouting this Tight Finish class would agree that there are MANY higher gamers on this draft.
