This is the 2013 NFL Combine Weigh-In Recap for the tight ends. Follow me @walterfootball for updates.


2013 NFL Combine: Weigh-In Recap - Tight Ends

  • Stanford tight end Zach Ertz (6-5, 249) checked in with surprisingly short arms (31 3/4). That tied for the shortest arms of any tight end in Indianapolis. Teams would prefer it if he had longer arms, but it shouldn't hurt him tremendously on draft day. However, Ertz is in a neck-and-neck race with Notre Dame's Tyler Eifert to be the first tight end selected, and the short arms won't help Ertz's cause.

  • Fellow Stanford tight end Levine Toilolo had been listed at 6-foot-8 by the Cardinal, and it was no exaggeration as Toilolo checked in at 6-foot-8, 260-pounds. The athletic Toilolo had long arms (34 1/2) and big hands (10 1/4). That size will be very intriguing for teams looking for a red-zone weapon and receiving tight end.



  • UCLA tight end Joseph Fauria (6-7, 259) had an impressive weigh-in. He was listed at 6-foot-7 by the Bruins and is clearly every inch of that. Fauria also had good length on his arms (33 3/4) and massive hands (10 7/8). Fauria had the largest hands of any draft prospect of all the tight ends in Indianapolis. He pulled out of the East-West Shrine with an injury, so it will be interesting to see if he takes part in the field activities.

  • Florida tight end Jordan Reed was expected to be smaller, but at 6-foot-2, 236-pounds, he is significantly undersized for an NFL tight end. Reed's game is athleticism and speed as a receiver. His blocking ability was known to need work for the NFL, but at that low of a weight, he may not be an option to keep on the field as a blocker. Being viewed as only a situational player will hurt Reed's draft stock.



  • Another tight end who was lighter than expected, but in a good way, was Michigan State's Dion Sims (6-4, 262). The Spartans had him at 285 pounds. Sims is a good blocker with receiving ability and that lighter weight should help his capacity to contribute to the passing attack. He could turn out to be one of the tight ends who helps himself the most if he runs a fast 40-yard dash and looks fluid in the field work.

    Kelce is a punk, and Walt has no reason to waste his time 'lying' to a nobody like Andy.

    Either Kelce's stock is suddenly plunging from a 2010 suspension, or Walt simply wasn't aware of the situation until now (since Kelce was nowhere near his radar in 2010). I wonder which is more likely.

    Travis Kelce a "trainwreck" character-wise? This makes me laugh because it is simply not true. Would love to hear who you heard this from Walt? Another one of your fake "reliable/prestigious" sources? Liar.

    Hope the Ravens draft Sims and let Dickson walk. Need a blocking TE to pair with Pitta and Sims has all the tools. Agree?

    I don't care if Toilolo is 7 feet tall. He can't block or catch.

    Fauria to Cleveland in round 5 would be a nice fit. He's massive with good pedigree and a red zone beast, I'm surprised he hasn't gotten more attention. Chud likes athletic TEs, could definitely see Fauria fitting in there, if he last through 4 rounds

    Kasa = overrated; sure everyone talks potential but he doesn't even have good measurables

    Toilolo = riser

    This week will be about how well they run and block imo.
