Hunter Henry’s injury weakened the tight end pool.  There’s a lot of players who could pop this season.  Engram, Njoku and Burton could help the depth of the position.  I’d stay away from older injury prone names like Reed abd Eifert.

1. Rob Gronkowski

2. Travis Kelce

3. Zach Ertz

4. Greg Olsen

5. Delanie Walker

6. Evan Engram

7. Jimmy Graham

8. Trey Burton

9. Jack Doyle

10. Kyle Rudolph

11. David Njoku

12. George Kittle

13. Jordan Reed

14. Cameron Brate

15. Charles Clay

16. OJ Howard

Player to watch

Dallas Goedert

Goedert is a big and fast rookie tight end.  He’ll have to work his way into the lineup.  I can see the Eagles having him and Zach Ertz on the field at the same time as the season goes on.  Goedert could be a good fill-in from time to time.  Trey Burton was worth a few starts last season behind Ertz.  Goedert is a better talent and could be a future star.  He’s a must add if Ertz goes down at all.
