The tight end group at the 2020 Senior Bowl features some sleepers behind stud Brycen Hopkins.

It’s almost time! One of the best parts of the 2020 NFL Draft process, the Senior Bowl, is set to begin this week. The best seniors from the 2019 college football season will all descend on Mobile, Alabama for a week of practices with NFL coaches and a game to finish off the week.

The entirety of the draft community will be there as well to analyze the players all week long to see who stands out in drills and one-on-ones. There are always winners during practice week who vastly improve their draft stock. As one great analyst has said, draft stock only goes up during the week.

Here at NFL Mocks, we are going through every position to break down the prospects heading to Mobile to give you a feel of how they could perform throughout the week! So far, quarterbacks, wide receivers, and running backs have all been previewed, and we now move to the tight end position.

The 2020 tight end class isn’t the best of the position groups and many analysts believe the quality is lower than in previous drafts. The class took a hit when Penn State tight end Pat Friermuth decided to return to school, and with Hunter Bryant and Thaddeus Moss being underclassmen, the senior group lacks a little bit of flare.

However, there will still be intrigue at the position heading into Senior Bowl week. There are always sleeper tight ends who emerge during the process. Let’s take a look at who those guys might be in this preview!
