There were times when I felt Oklahoma State tight end didn't finish or play with a lot of intensity, but when you look at the entire picture, I believe one can see player who could well become one of the better tight ends in the game in the not too distinct future.
I would like to have seen Wisconsin's Travis Beckum perform as a senior, but he was injured early and lost for the season. He certainly can catch the football and I believe had made strides as an inline blocker.
Missouri' Chase Coffman has the receiving skills of a young Dan Ross. He has excellent body control, exceptional hands and was particularly effective in the short under zones and in the red-zone. On the negative side of the agenda, I have seldom seen him in a three point stance, let alone blocking at the point of attack. I also question his speed and ability to get up the seam.
Colorado State's tight end Kory Sperry and NC State's Anthony Hill, but came off season ending injuries in 2007 to have solid senior campaigns. Keep close tabs on East Carolina' Davon Drew and No Carolina junior Richard Quinn; both are talented developing players who have a real chances to become special players.
Former Nebraska-Omaha quarterback has size, rare speed and as much overall athletic ability as any player in the country.
Much like the aforementioned Beckum, Florida multi-talented tight end Cornelius Ingram, was injured in the pre-season. If and when he is cleared medically, I like this player' chances of developing into a very dangerous up the seam receiving threat.
