Pos.RankPlayerSchoolHt.Wt.40
TE1Rob GronkowskiArizona6-62654.76
Notes: [Andy Hart] Do-ti-all, including blocking. Soft hands. Decent enough athlete after the catch. Smooth. Should have best NFL career if back is a non-issue.

TE2Jermaine GreshamOklahoma6-52614.66
Notes: [Andy Hart] Total pass-catching package if healthy. Not a freakish athletic package, but certainly good enough. [Erik Scalavino] Nice hands; tough to take down; routes, blocking are question marks.
TE3Jimmy GrahamMiami6-62604.53
Notes: [Andy Hart] Only one year of FB after basketball career. Good frame and measurables for the position. Project with huge upside. [Erik Scalavino] Great size; inexperienced, but definitely has raw talent.
TE4Anthony McCoySouthern Cal6-52594.71
Notes: [Andy Hart] Pretty good blocker. OK hands and decent athlete. Slow feet. Rumbles like Daniel Graham. [Erik Scalavino] Solid receiver, but not a "wow" kind of player.
TE5Aaron HernandezFlorida6-32454.64
Notes: [Andy Hart] Smaller. Confident hands. Not elite athlete, but OK RAC. Good enough speed. H-back? [Erik Scalavino] Solid overall, but nothing special.
