Tight Ends

 

The were eleven TEs selected in the 2021 draft, as follows:

 

Round 1 - 1

Round 2 - 1

Round 3 - 3

Round 4 - 2

Round 5 - 4

 

Pitts was the apex in 2021, with everyone else  trailing far behind. This is no indictment on the others not named. Pitts was/is just that good. The group offered up some good to serviceable talent, with most being role-players that will be plugged in here and there. 

The 2022 draft should boast more than the eleven selections we saw in 2021. This is a well-distributed crop of guys, where talent can be found in the middle to later rounds. A number of these guys should be able to secure roster spots on NFL rosters as cheaper depth plays.
