Mayock Ranks The Top Five TEs In Draft

With the NFL Scouting Combine set to get underway next week in Indianapolis, let's start to take a peek at some of the rankings of the draft prospects at each position. Today, let's check out NFL Network draft expert Mike Mayock's top five players at the tight end position. The notes on each player were provided by NFL.com from their Combine section.

Mayock's Top 5 Tight Ends
Name Height Weight College
1. Kyle Rudolph 6-5
253
Notre Dame
Note: Rudolph missed the final seven games of 2010 after undergoing hamstring surgery, but he has the potential to develop into a weapon in the passing game.
2. Lance Kendricks 6-4
241
Wisconsin
Note: Kendricks is an interesting prospect because he is a H-Back/Tight End hybrid. He possesses the speed and athleticism to be a weapon down the seam.
3. Luke Stocker 6-6
253
Tennessee
Note: Stocker has prototypical size for a tight end at the next level. He runs solid routes and works to find space in zone.
4. D.J. Williams 6-2
251
Arkansas
Note: Williams is a highly-productive, hard-working tight end prospect with outstanding character who was one of the key components of Arkansas' pass attack.
5. Virgil Green 6-5
240
Nevada
Note: Green is a legitimate target whose production struggled a bit because of the offense, but his athleticism and ability to present match-up problems is apparent.
