This was never going to be a great tight end class, especially when it was stacked up to the last few classes that featured big names like O.J. Howard, T.J. Hockenson, Noah Fant, David Njoku, Jonnu Smith, etc.
However, the fact that so many big name players just completely fell off of the radar this season was surprising. Specifically, Nashville’s own Jared Pinkney basically took himself off of draft boards after being a name that many thought would be a value pick in the second round.
This group has just been so underwhelming that anything less than a very good combine was going to put this position group up there as the most likely candidate for worst group in the class.
Well, here we are on Sunday and now we know for sure that this is the worst group in the class.
Cole Kmet, Albert Okwuegbunam and Brycen Hopkins had the best days of anyone but really outside of those three I don’t know how you draft a tight end in the top-100 without expecting him to be at least a year away from contributing and even then you can’t have big expectations.
