Miami tight end Devonaire Clarington is considering several top-tier teams.

No position in football has evolved as quickly and fully as tight end. It demands versatility from players, requiring both downfield receiving and strong blocking abilities.

College programs pursue prospects who can exploit the seam on one play and then spring a big run by laying out a linebacker on the next. The 2015 class has athletes who can do both, though it's difficult to find a complete tight end at the high school level.

Many are wide receivers with tremendous size who will transition during the next phase of their career. Others are punishing blockers who haven't tapped into their potential as pass targets.

Multiple playmakers flashed impressive skill sets at The Opening, an annual July football showcase held in Beaverton, Oregon. Bleacher Report was on hand for the event while gaining familiarity with other recruits through game film.

Here's our breakdown of the top 10 tight ends in this recruiting cycle.
