2024 NFL Draft tight end rankings

Underrated: Jared Wiley, TCU

One of the more complete tight ends in the 2024 NFL Draft is TCU’s Jared Wiley. As a receiver he does a great job of catching the ball in traffic and at 6-foot-6 he is a big target in the red zone. When it comes to blocking he shows good technique and the desire to excel at this part of his game.

Overrated: Ben Sinnott, Kansas State

Ben Sinnott might have had the most impressive performance of any tight end at the NFL Combine. He led all tight ends with a 40-inch vertical jump, a 4.23 20-yard shuttle, and 10’6 broad jump. Despite these impressive testing numbers and having the most receptions, receiving yards, and receiving touchdowns in a single season by a Kansas State tight end I still have concerns about his NFL potential. These concerns include lacking great agility as a receiver and being a below-average blocker.

Non-Power Five player to watch: Dallin Holker, Colorado State

The only Group of Five tight end to make my draft board is Colorado State’s Dallin Holker. Holker is coming off the best season of his career where he led all tight ends in receiving yards during the regular season and was named to the Hero Sports All Group of Five team.

NFL team who needs this position: Indianapolis Colts

The Colts don't have anyone at this position that scares opponents, and they will likely invest one of their three top 100 picks in one. A player who would make sense in the second round is Ja'Tavion Sanders.

Overall Rankings (NFL Draft grade I give the player)

1. Brock Bowers, Georgia (first round)

2. Ja'Tavion Sanders, Texas (second round)

3. Jared Wiley, TCU (second round)

4. Theo Johnson, Penn State (fourth round)

5. Cade Stover, Ohio State (fourth round)

6. Ben Sinnott, Kansas State (fifth round)

7. Tip Reiman, Illinois (sixth round)

8. Jaheim Bell, Florida State (sixth round)

9. Brevyn Spann-Ford, Minnesota (seventh round)

10. Dallin Holker, Colorado State (seventh round)
