1. Eric Ebron, North Carolina
Ebron is full of potential. He was switched to Tight his freshman year of college after being recruited as a defensive player. After learning a whole new position his freshman year, he had a breakout season his sophomore season and continued his improvement through his junior year. Eric Ebron can make spectacular catches all over the field while stretching the defense with above average speed. His run blocking is average, but this should not be too much of a concern. Some say Ebron is the best tight end to come out of the draft since Vernon Davis.
2. Jace Amaro, Texas Tech
Amaro had a tremendous 2013 season with the Red Raiders. He was a very consistent receiver and ended the season with 106 receptions and 1,352 yards. Initially Amaro wanted to stay for his senior year but ultimately did not have much to prove, so he decided to enter the draft. He has the speed to out-run most linebackers and safeties making him a matchup nightmare. He is also an above average run blocker.
3. Austin Seferian-Jenkins, Washington
Seferian is NFL ready possessing incredible size for a tight end. He has an above average ability to catch the ball and is a fairly good blocker. While it seems he may have slightly below average speed it can be compensated by his larger stature and ability to catch the ball. Off the field issues may be a concern following a DUI in March.
4. C.J. Fiedorowicz, Iowa
The Iowa Tight end is probably the best run blocker in the draft. He has slightly below average speed but has pretty consistent hands. He did not put up the numbers that most receiving tight ends put up but does possess the potential to be a solid receiver. Fiedorowics may not be one of the new breed of tight ends like Graham or Gronkowski that everybody is looking for, but he is a top notch blocker that can contribute to any football team. A good senior bowl performance has helped his stock while a good 40 time would help it even more.
