2019 NFL Draft Position Rankings:
QB | RB | FB | WR | TE | OT | G | C | DE | DT | NT | 3-4 OLB | 3-4 DE | OLB | ILB | CB | S | K | P

  1. Caleb Wilson*, TE, UCLA
    Height: 6-4. Weight: 235.
    Projected 40 Time: 4.69.
    Projected Round (2019): 2-3.

    2/8/18: Wilson was phenomenal in 2017 as the most reliable receiving threat for Josh Rosen. Prior to a season-ending foot injury, Wilson had 38 receptions for 490 yards and one touchdown. He was instrumental in the legendary comeback over Texas A&M, hauling in 15 passes for 208 yards in that game. Wilson is a quick tight end who runs good routes and is dangerous as a run-after-the-catch threat. As a freshman in 2016, he had 16 catches for 220 yards.






  2. Tyler Petite, TE, USC
    Height: 6-4. Weight: 250.
    Projected 40 Time: 4.75.
    Projected Round (2019): 2-4.

    2/8/18: As a junior, Petite caught 23 passes for 307 yards and three touchdowns. He was a nice receiving option for Sam Darnold, but unfortunately for Petite, Darnold entered the 2018 NFL Draft, meaning Petite will have to break in a new quarterback next year. In 2016 (10-156-2) and 2015 (15-145-1), Petite made modest contributions. He should also work on improving his blocking.


  3. C.J. Conrad*, TE, Kentucky
    Height: 6-5. Weight: 245.
    Projected 40 Time: 4.70.
    Projected Round (2019): 2-4.

    2/8/18: Conrad caught 16 passes for 286 yards and four touchdowns in 2017. His season ended early because of a foot injury that required surgery. Conrad impressed in 2016 even though he had limited opportunities. He caught 19 passes for 262 yards with four touchdowns that season. Conrad has a lot of upside to grow in the years to come.




  4. Tommy Sweeney, TE, Boston College
    Height: 6-5. Weight: 255.
    Projected 40 Time: 4.71.
    Projected Round (2019): 3-5.

    2/8/18: In 2017, Sweeney totaled 36 catches for 512 yards and four touchdowns. He has the size and strength to be a blocker at the point of attack as well. As a sophomore, Sweeney made 26 receptions for 353 yards and three touchdowns.


  5. Irv Smith Jr.*, TE, Alabama
    Height: 6-4. Weight: 245.
    Projected 40 Time: 4.59.
    Projected Round (2019): 3-5.

    2/8/18: Smith flashed some real receiving ability in 2017, but Alabama's passing offense really struggled with Jalen Hurts at quarterback. For the year, Smith totaled 14 catches for 127 yards and three touchdowns. He was capable of producing a lot more if he had been given more targets. Smith is the son of Irv Smith Sr., who was a top-20 pick in the 1993 NFL Draft out of Notre Dame.


  6. Brandon Fritts, TE, North Carolina
    Height: 6-4. Weight: 250.
    Projected 40 Time: 4.75.
    Projected Round (2019): 4-6.



  7. Alize Mack, TE, Notre Dame
    Height: 6-4. Weight: 245.
    Projected 40 Time: 4.68.
    Projected Round (2019): 4-6.

  8. Mitchell Wilcox, TE, South Florida
    Height: 6-4. Weight: 248.
    Projected 40 Time: 4.75.
    Projected Round (2019): 4-6.

    Height: 6-6. Weight: 250.
    Projected 40 Time: 4.77.
    Projected Round (2019): 4-6.

    Projected 40 Time: 4.80.
    Projected Round (2019): 4-6.

  11. Charles Jones II, TE, Tulane
    Height: 6-4. Weight: 255.
    Projected 40 Time: 4.78.
    Projected Round (2019): 5-7.
