    I love Goedert. His ball skills and RAC are outstanding. He's going to be a star.

    Gesicki might be the worst blocker in college football.

    I wish he played at a better level of competition so we could get better calibration on him. I agree his tape is strong, but there always has to be some level of doubt based on the level of competition.

    Ted, keep your eyes on Jordan Thomas at Mississippi State. Huge TE who has hands and is an underrated athlete.

    I've got a mark on Jeb Blazevich of Georgia.

    One thing I find unique about him as a blocker is his feet are really good. He gets his hips around moving targets and is one of the most effective blockers you'll see out there.

    But there's more to him than that, and he's a good example of a TE that slips through the cracks a bit because the college game has for the most part forgotten how to incorporate TEs into the passing game.

    I saw some things in some of his 2015 footage that had me suspecting he was a dynamic receiving target in high school despite being more of an in-line blocker for Georgia. The high school tape bears that out. He came in with legit receiving and running skills, runs well with the football in his hands too, but at Georgia he blocks a lot.

    Definitely a guy worth paying attention to. He doesn't run like an athletic lineman. He runs better than that. If he tests well, and I suspect he will, he'll be a guy to keep an eye on.

    Good blocker. He was completely phased out of the passing game in favor of a freshman. Isaac Nauta is much more of a mismatch as a receiving tight end.

    I currently grade him as a UDFA. Although I believe he can latch on at the next level as a 2nd or 3rd TE.

    The Sooners TE, Mark Andrews, is a Jr this year, but he looks like he is going to be one to watch if he comes out.
