  1. Kyle Pitts*, TE, Florida
    Height: 6-6. Weight: 239.
    Projected 40 Time: 4.68.
    Projected Round (2021): 1.

    2/10/20: Pitts turned into play-maker in 2019, creating mismatches in the passing game. He is too fast for linebackers while being too big for safeties in coverage. For the NFL, Pitts could stand to improve his blocking, but he will get drafted for his receiving ability. In 2019, he hauled in 54 receptions for 649 yards and five touchdowns. Pitts could be improved in 2020 after gaining experience and developing more physically.




  2. Jalen Wydermyer**, TE, Texas A&M
    Height: 6-5. Weight: 260.
    Projected 40 Time: 4.70.
    Projected Round (2021): 1-3.

    2/10/20: Wydermyer created a buzz with scouts for having a good skill with a ton of upside during the 2019 season. The Aggies staff raved about Wydermyer to NFL evaluators coming through College Station. In 2019, he totaled 32 receptions for 447 yards and six touchdowns. Wydermyer has good size to him with speed and athleticism. He could have three-down starting potential for the NFL.


  3. Brevin Jordan*, TE, Miami
    Height: 6-4. Weight: 245.
    Projected 40 Time: 4.65.
    Projected Round (2021): 2-3.

    2/10/20: After a strong freshman season, Jordan is helping to invigorate Miami as 'tight end U'. The Las Vegas, Nevada product had 32 receptions for 287 yards with four touchdowns in 2018. In 2019, the sophomore recorded 35 catches for 495 yards and two touchdowns. He is capable of producing more, but Miami was inconsistent at getting him the ball. Jordan is undersized, so getting stronger and working on his blocking will be important for the NFL.


  4. Matt Bushman, TE, BYU
    Height: 6-5. Weight: 245.
    Projected 40 Time: 4.74.
    Projected Round (2021): 3-5.

    2/10/20: Bushman had his best season for the Cougars in 2019, recording 47 catches for 688 yards and four touchdowns. Prior to that, Bushman had been a consistent receiving weapon for BYU as an underclassman. In 2018, he caught 29 passes for 511 yards and two touchdowns. Bushman hauled in 49 passes for 520 yards and three scores in 2017.


  5. Pat Freiermuth*, TE, Penn State
    Height: 6-5. Weight: 256.
    Projected 40 Time: 4.72.
    Projected Round (2021): 3-5.

    2/10/20: In 2019, Freiermuth totaled 43 receptions for 507 yards and seven touchdowns. He has upside with quickness, size and athleticism. As a freshman, he collected 26 catches for 368 yards and eight touchdowns. Freiermuth could rise as a junior and/or senior.




  6. Major Tennison**, TE, Alabama
    Height: 6-4. Weight: 221.
    Projected 40 Time: 4.67.
    Projected Round (2021): 4-6.

  7. Kemari Averett, TE, Louisville
    Height: 6-6. Weight: 267.
    Projected 40 Time: 4.68.
    Projected Round (2021): 4-6.

  8. Grant Calcaterra, TE, Oklahoma
    Height: 6-4. Weight: 221.
    Projected 40 Time: 4.67.
    Projected Round (2021): 5-7.
