2022 TE Draft Prospects

Traditionally, tight ends were slightly more athletic linemen trusted to block on the edge, As the game has evolved, the position has become more critical to successful passing attacks. In recent years. we've seen guys like Travis Kelce, George Kittle, Zach Ertz, TJ Hockenson, and others become major contributors for their respective teams. These guys were all drafted in different rounds, which shows you can find value anywhere.
