2017 NFL Draft Tight End Grades/Rankings (2.0)

Updated grades on the RB-s group. Their grades can and will change with new information in and we will update and add prospects to this list right up to draft day and beyond.

A few notes on our 2.0 rankings…

— Petty normal rankings here, except for…

I think Michael Roberts can be a top 3 TE from this class…maybe, even the best long term, if Howard falters.

Jake Butt would be higher if not for his multiple ACL injuries.

I don’t get Gerald Everett love at all — I think he is the biggest sucker bets in the 2017 NFL Draft.

 

— Deep Sleepers…

Former Texas, highly mobile, QB Tyrone Swoopes tested very athletic at his Pro Day. He has a nice chance to become something if he works at learning the position.

I like Blake Jarwin’s tape, potential. He may be a bit of a shock TE from this class.

*A score of 7.0+ is where we start to take a TE prospect more seriously. A score of 8.50+ is where we see a stronger correlation of TEs going on to become NFL good/great/elite. A score of 10.00+ is more rarefied air in our system and indicates a greater probability of becoming an elite NFL TE.

All of the TE ratings are based on a 0–10 scale, but a player can score negative, or above a 10.0 in certain instances.

**The ‘TE-Reed’ score is in honor of Jordan Reed’s 2015 season…looking at TEs in a different manner—the smaller, speedy receiving threats.

“Speed-Agility Metric” = A combination of unique metrics surrounding speed, agility, physical size, mixed with some on-field performance metrics. High scorers here project to have a better YAC and show characteristics to be used as deep threats/create separation.

“Power-Strength Metric” = A combination of unique metrics surrounding physical size profiling, bench press strength, etc.  High scorers here project to be more physical, better blockers, and less injury-prone.

“Hands Metric” = A combination of unique metrics surrounding on-field performance in college, considering the strength of opponents played. Furthermore, this data considers some physical profiling for hand size, etc. High scorers here have a better track record of college statistical performance and project the combination of data for receiving success at the next level.
