Summary: Kyle Rudolph is the consensus top tight end even though a hamstring injury cost him a good chunk of last season. The eagerness of many to compare him to New England rookie Rob Gronkowski sets the bar high. Rudolph has the same ability to hurt a defense down the seam. The modern NFL has a lot of athletic receiving tight ends. If Rudolph can become an even better blocker, bulk up and play a little tougher, he can stand out in the crowd.
