2024 NFL Draft tight end rankings

ACC: Jaheim Bell, Florida State: A player who may be viewed more as an H-back or fullback than a traditional tight end is Florida State’s Jaheim Bell. At these positions, he will be able to use his quickness, agility, and consistent hands to create match-up problems for opposing defensive coordinators.

Big 10: Theo Johnson, Penn State: While Theo Johnson never put up tremendous numbers in college he still should be looked at as one of the top tight ends in the NFL Draft. As a receiver, he shows the ability to gain separation consistently, and as a blocker he possesses underrated power.

Big 12: Jared Wiley, TCU: A player I am higher on than most is TCU’s Jared Wiley. One of the reasons I am so high on him is his overall strength. As a receiver, he is hard to take down after the catch and does a good job of catching the contested throw. As a blocker, his strength combined with his aggressive style of play should allow him to be a valuable asset in the run game.

Pac 12: Tanner McLachlan, Arizona: A player I am lower on than others are is Arizona’s, Tanner McLachlan. While he is the school's all-time leader in receptions by a tight end, his blocking and lack of technique as a rout runner earn him an undrafted free agent grade from me.

SEC: Brock Bowers, Georgia: There is no doubt who the top tight end is in this year’s draft and that is Georgia’s Brock Bowers. Bowers is a complete tight end with soft hands, the quickness to get open, and the strength to run over defenders after the catch should be a top-15 pick.

Non-Power Five: Dallin Holker, Colorado State: One of the most productive tight ends in college football last season was Colorado State's Dallin Holker, who led all FBS tight ends with 767 receiving yards. However, his lack of speed and agility will likely make him a sixth or seventh-round pick.
