2012 NFL Combine: First Impressions TE

2012 NFL Scouting Combine

James' thoughts on the first two days for the tight ends.

NEPD Editor: James Christensen

After a couple of days in Indianapolis, we finally have some real information coming out.

Doug already gave his first impressions of the offensive linemen at the NFL Combine, here are our thoughts so far on the tight ends.

-Coby Fleener (Stanford) measured in the tallest at 6’6″.

-Emil Igwenagu (UMass) and Evan Rodgriguez were the shortest at 6’1″.

-Corey Harkey (UCLA) was the heaviest at 260.

-Nick Provo (Syracuse) was the lightest at 237.

-Syracuse’s Dwayne Allen (27) and Georgia’s Orson Charles (35) both put up impressive numbers in the bench press.

-Ladarius Greeen (La-Lafayette) had enormous hands (10+ inches) and arms (34.5 inches) while putting up a respectable 16 reps on the bench. Not bad for a converted receiver with long arms.

-Harkey’s 13 reps were the lowest, not great for the heaviest tight end in the group.

-James Hanna (Oklahoma) is an interesting prospect – looking forward to seeing him run and in positional drills.

    I agree about drafting a third tight end in the middle rounds. We have two great ones already but injuries happen and can be costly: i.e. with a health Gronk we would have won the SB…..

    I wouldnt mind seeing them take ladarius green in the mid rounds. At 6’6 with good speed and huge hands he could be another matchup nightmare opposite Gronk. Depending on his speed he could also be split out wide. Him on one side split out, gronk on the other in jump ball situations on the goaline….hahah forget about it defenses!

    Wouldn’t it be something if the Pats took one of the top TE’s and turned the offense into a 3 TE set monster. Teams last year couldn’t match up with Gronk and Hernandez. Imagine adding another top TE in the mix, just a thought. Might be a little overkill.
