This isn’t the best year to be looking to pick up a tight end if you’re one of those teams who want to find a guy to feature regularly in the passing game.
The exception to that is Kyle Pitts who has all the tools to be an elite receiving tight end – he could end up being talked about in the same vein as Travis Kelce and Rob Gronkowski if he keeps going the way he’s been trending.
Pat Freiermuth should be the second guy drafted from this group but he’s definitely no better than a mid-second round pick in my eyes – think more Dallas Goedert than Noah Fant.
Brevin Jordan has prototypical athletic traits and is a dynamic threat in the red zone while Hunter Long has been the one who’s shown up more as a receiver on film in 2020 than ever before and has definitely turned a few heads.
Beyond those four, there’s not much to get excited about in this group – other than couple of the names of course. You’ll get some solid special teams contributors and decent backups but nothing more than that really.
The one with the highest ceiling is probably Quintin Morris of Bowling Green – the small school guy dominated defenses in the MAC and had a great showing at the Senior Bowl, but the question teams will be asking is whether he can do it against better opposition. If you’ve not read our profile on him as part of our Senior Bowl’s ‘Ones to Watch’ series then I’d thoroughly recommend it.
