The 2013 NFL draft is said to be rather weak at the tight end position. But as there are generally two types of tight ends in the NFL, blocking and receiving, we focus on perhaps the best of the latter variety.
Projected as a middle-to-late-round selection, Chris Gragg of Arkansas will be an instant weapon in the right offense. Gragg's 4.5-second 40-yard dash (per NFL.com) at the NFL Scouting Combine last February proves that he can run—he posted the fastest time among tight ends.
A blocker he is not, however, so buyer beware.
At 6'3'' and 244 pounds, he doesn't have the overall mass and strength to do much in the running game. These traits could place him in more of an H-back role in the NFL.
If given time to develop and clean up some bad habits—such as holding the ball away from his body—Gragg will be a potential weapon for some team that already has a starting tight end that is both a good blocker and pass-catcher.
