Something that I've been wondering for a while now, and is particularly relevant given that Ron Rivera recently expressed a desire to get a complete tight end for his offense and widespread belief that this is the worst TE class in a long time. Regardless of what you think of Kyle Rudolph's draft range, I don't think anyone believes he's not the consensus top tight end in this draft. So who's second? Zach Pianalto of North Carolina, Luke Stocker of Tennessee, and D.J. Williams of Arkansas are the three guys I've heard the most "hype" for. Pianalto seems like more of a blocker, Williams is mostly a souped-up receiver, and Stocker seems like a classic No. 2/No. 3 TE who isn't the best athlete but can get the job done. Williams is my No. 2 for now, and a fringe 3rd-rounder in my book; I'm interested in seeing arguments for Stocker, Pianalto, and maybe guys like Virgil Green, though.
No announcement yet.
