With the continued emergence of star tight ends like Rob Gronkowski, Jimmy Graham, and Jordan Cameron, NFL teams are seeing the value of having a playmaking tight end to round out their offensive schemes. Having a big-bodied, reliable pass-catching target at tight end is especially important to help teams with young quarterbacks, like the Buffalo Bills, in their development and long term success.

Fortunately for teams like the Bills who could be in the market for a tight end upgrade, this year’s draft class is full of opportunities to draft a tight end with star potential.

Though they might not agree on how to rank the three, most draft prognosticators agree that the top trio of tight end prospects in the 2014 draft class are North Carolina’s Eric Ebron (6’4’’, 245 lbs), Texas Tech’s Jace Amaro (6’5’’, 260 lbs) and Washington’s Austin Seferian-Jenkins (6’6’’, 276 lbs).

Louisville’s Teddy Bridgewater is the consensus top quarterback in the 2014 NFL draft class, but two names could vault themselves into the same discussion as Bridgewater with great seasons. Those two are Tajh Boyd of Clemson and David Fales of San Jose State. Both are contenders for the top spot with their own key qualities that make them successful.

We’ll take a look at Boyd on page 1, then look at Fales and compare the two on page 2.
