However, sometimes these tools just never translated to the field. A TE with that kind of matchup advantage should be making highlight reels every week, but for some reason Egnew just never did.

    Does he have the potential to be a spectacular talent, you bet, but he has a long way to go and a lot of polishing up of his game before he gets there.
    Exactly - very impressive at the Combine - but he didn't play that fast. Really struggled to explode out of his breaks. One dimensional vertical stretch guy who has very limited experience as an inline blocker. Won't be for everyone and certainly I think Ladarius Green is better.

      I like LaDarius Green. Same thing, great measurables at 6'6" 240lbs, ran in the 4.5 range and has pretty natural hands. In addition, I'm a big fan of college production and at the minimum, Green has been one of the most consistent performers at the position in the last 4 years.

        Yeah, I'll take my chances on Green as opposed to Egnew.

          Personally, if I'm trying to guess which tight end will turn out to be the best player, I'm not going to lay my money down on the guy who's career yards per catch barely tops 9.0. Haven't been impressed with him at all when I've seen him play.

            Just my top 5 tight ends.

            1.Fleener, Stanford
            Experience and production in a pro style offense combined with his size and combine numbers makes him the clear cut #1 for me.

            2. Green, LA-Lafayette
            Huge frame, very versatile as far as where he can line up as well as great potential. Almost a pure oversized WR. Love his hands. Will need to improve blocking.

            3. Egnew, Mizzou
            4a. Allen, Clemson
            4b. Charles, Georgia

            Obviously who turns out the best depends on the situation but this TE class has 5 immediate contributors.

              Green's blocking is so bad. I know he's a move piece, and I know TEs don't have to be great blockers, but man. Very bad.

                He did play with a new Quarterback. Not using that as an excuse but Franklin did tuck it and run A LOT more than Gabbert did.
