2007 NFL Draft tight end rankings

Frank Coyle's analysis of the class:

This is only a slightly above-average class of tight ends, even after benefiting from the addition of several top-flight underclassmen like Zach Miller and Greg Olsen.


POSITION
GRADE
B

This position has become a key spot in pro offenses. Many prospects fill the tight end, H-back and fullback positions within an offense.

The top two prospects - both juniors - should be selected in the first round. The next player on this list will like have to wait until the third or fourth round to hear his name called.

The majority of these prospects will be selected on the second day of the draft - if they are chosen.
