[UPDATE] 2018 NFL Draft TE Rankings — Top 25

The 2018 NFL Draft tight end class features all different types of prospects, from pass-catchers, to in-line blockers and players able to do a bit of both. After two years without a tight end being taken in the first round, last year’s class featured three tight ends selected in round one. While this year’s draft class isn’t quite as loaded up top, it has plenty to offer and we expect to see about a half dozen tight ends selected during the first two days. Small school standout Dallas Goedert of South Dakota State, who has amassed a remarkable 2,404 receiving yards and 18 touchdowns over the past two seasons for the Jackrabbits, sits atop our rankings.
