FBGP’s 2015 NFL Draft Prospect Rankings – Tight Ends, Inline Players

Grading the 2015 NFL Draft Tight Ends: Inline Prospects

Playing inline for a Tight End is playing the position as it’s traditionally designed. You want a guy that can do well on both ends of offense: Blocking and Catching. ┬áThe blocking element is important because it not only helps out the running game, but also allows you as a coach to keep your base personnel on the field; which then keeps the defense off-balance in not being able to know what’s coming their way: run or pass. Ideally, you’re looking for guys like this that can do both or at least have above-average skills in the blocking department. ┬áJason Witten of the Dallas Cowboys and Heath Miller of the Pittsburgh Steelers are the types of styles you’re looking for when you’re judging whether or not a guy is suitable to play inline, flexed or playing H-Back.

Here’s a look at the ’15 college prospects that have graded out as Inline TEs in this year’s draft.
