If you are looking for a solid, young, overall TE, this is the year for you. This year’s TE class is deep and most of them are above average as both blockers and pass catchers. This year has the type of class that you can split them out wide, play them close to the line, or even run some of the TE end arounds that are now becoming more popular. The athleticism of this year’s TE class is the type that usually comes around every 5-10 years.


Just like we saw with the RBs, arguably the top two TEs this year, went to the same school, Iowa. TJ Hockenson and Noah Fant were the dynamic duo for the Hawkeyes this year. In 13 games, the two combined for almost 1300 yards and 14 TDs. Fant is the more athletic of the two, but Hockenson is the better blocker. They are both round the same size and both will go by middle of round two, but there is a good chance that one will get their name called in the 1st round.

Another tight end that is likely locked into getting selected in the 1st two rounds is Irv Smith Jr of Alabama. Smith, like Fant and Hockenson, can do it both, in terms of being a good pass catcher and a blocker. He is a consensus top three TE and could have a similar impact to former Crimson Tide TE OJ Howard. There are other TEs that could have a solid combine and a solid career, but development and experience is more needed in the rest of the group than the top three listed above. There is a gap.

Below are the Tight End measurements from the 2019 NFL Combine.
