This is an odd year for tight ends. Last year, we had three top tight end prospects, all from power five schools who were clearly regarded as the best prospects at their position in the draft.
This year though, the draft seems to have four tight ends in “tier” one, and scouts and experts cannot decide on who the top prospect is. Mark Andrews from Oklahoma was long considered the top player, and he profiles as a more traditional blocking and receiving tight end. However, he has seen his value slip a bit in recent weeks. There’s Mike Gesicki from Penn State, the Combine freak. His Combine performance put him on the map and has some scouts saying he is the top tight end in the draft. Dallas Goedert from little ol’ South Dakota State is also an athletic freak and everything you would want in a tight end.
Finally, there’s Hayden Hurst, the most intriguing prospect out of the bunch. Let’s dive in and look at Hurst’s overall game.
