1. Dalton Kincaid, Utah
BIG BOARD RANK: 25
You'd like him to be a little bigger to make defenses respect him as a blocker, but he's the best receiving tight end in the class.
2. Michael Mayer, Notre Dame
BIG BOARD RANK: 28
Mayer is one of the highest-floor players in the draft. You know you're getting a complete, productive tight end at the next level. However, can he separate enough to be a true difference-maker?
3. Luke Musgrave, Oregon State
BIG BOARD RANK: 33
Musgrave has the goods. He just doesn't have the refinement. The good thing is he can still contribute due to his tools while developing into a more complete pass-catcher.
4. Sam LaPorta, Iowa
BIG BOARD RANK: 57
LaPorta has the tools to be a difference-maker at the position. That's who you want to take chances on at the position.
5. Darnell Washington, Georgia
BIG BOARD RANK: 72
Washington may be more of a luxury piece than a necessity at tight end, but if you have a specific role for him in your offense, you won't find anyone better.
