2011 NFL Draft Preview: Tight Ends

Posted Apr 11, 2011

Take a closer look at some of the top prospects at tight end as the 2011 NFL Draft approaches

ENGLEWOOD, Colo. -- In the weeks leading up to the 2011 NFL Draft, DenverBroncos.com is taking a look at the draft prospects position-by-position.

We will devote a week to each group, looking back at some of the Broncos' previous picks at the position and showcasing some of the top prospects through top stories, blogs and Broncos TV videos.

Next up in the nine-part series: tight ends.

Below you will find six of the top prospects at the position. Later in the week, we will profile another prospect to keep an eye on with a name Broncos fans are plenty familiar with -- Arkansas tight end D. J. Williams.

TOP PROSPECTS AT THE POSITION:

CHARLES CLAY
• COLLEGE: Tulsa
• HEIGHT: 6'3"
• WEIGHT: 245
• KEY STATISTICS: 189 receptions; 2,544 rec. yds; 911 rush yds; 38 total TDs
On camaraderie within the tight end group:
"It's funny, coming in (to the combine) I didn't think it would be a group that would talk that much since we're competing against each other, but at the same time just like professional guys, off the field you're all friends. But once we get out there, it's all about competition."
Player
VIRGIL GREEN
Player • COLLEGE: Nevada
• HEIGHT: 6'3"
• WEIGHT: 249
• KEY STATISTICS: 71 receptions; 911 rec. yds; 11 rec. TDs
On his speed:
"I think it will be a great help to my game. I refuse to be covered by linebackers and I don’t like being covered by DBs, either, so I think that’s going to help me out with route running and breaking away from defenders. I’m confident that my speed will help me out."
LANCE KENDRICKS
• COLLEGE: Wisconsin
• HEIGHT: 6'3"
• WEIGHT: 243
• KEY STATISTICS: 78 receptions; 1,160 rec. yds; 8 rec. TDs
On his blocking skill:
"Blocking’s essential to (Wisconsin's) offense. Before you touch the field, you have to know how to block. They make that known right away, right when you hit the locker room in Day 1. I think it’s essential for us to know how to block."
Player
KYLE RUDOLPH
Player • COLLEGE: Notre Dame
• HEIGHT: 6'6"
• WEIGHT: 259
• KEY STATISTICS: 90 receptions; 1,032 rec. yds; 8 rec. TDs
On who he compares himself to:
"Tony Gonzalez is the best tight end who has ever played in my time and I really try to model myself after him. But I feel that Jason Witten, I feel really comparable to his game, a guy that can hold the point and is a great blocker but at the same time he makes huge plays in the passing game."
LUKE STOCKER
• COLLEGE: Tennessee
• HEIGHT: 6'5"
• WEIGHT: 258
• KEY STATISTICS: 85 receptions; 956 rec. yds; 8 rec. TDs
On what separates him from other tight end prospects:
"I think my strengths are the balance I have. I feel like I’m a really good blocker and I’m a really good receiver. As a defense, that’s hard to prepare for. You look at the guys that are hard to prepare for -- the Steelers, the Patriots, the Cowboys -- they have dual-threat guys, and the tight ends are essential."
