A look at some of the top tight ends leading up to the 2012 NFL Draft.

ENGLEWOOD, Colo. -- In the weeks leading up to the 2012 NFL Draft, DenverBroncos.com is taking a look at the draft prospects position-by-position.

We wrap up the previews with a look at some of the tight end prospects available.


• POSITION: Tight End
• COLLEGE: Clemson
• HEIGHT: 6'3"
• WEIGHT: 255
On his decision to leave school early
"Leaving my teammates was the most difficult thing about my decision, leaving Clemson. But I’m a fourth-year junior. I’ve been in the program four years and I feel like I’ve garnered enough experience in my three years starting."
Player • POSITION: Tight End
• COLLEGE: Georgia
• HEIGHT: 6'2"
• WEIGHT: 251
On his approach to blocking:
"Blocking is mainly a want-to. You've got to want to do it. I feel like if you have the technique and the will to do it, you can block anybody."
• POSITION: Tight End
• COLLEGE: Stanford
• HEIGHT: 6'6"
• WEIGHT: 247
On how the tight end position has changed in the NFL:
"The guys that played in the NFL this year the Jimmy Grahams the Gronkowskis of the world have really done our class of tight ends a favor this year. I can’t say enough about the guys that have already played and I hope to one day go play just like that."
Player • POSITION: Tight End
• COLLEGE: Louisiana-Lafayette
• HEIGHT: 6'6"
• WEIGHT: 238
On his biggest strength and weaknesses:
"My biggest strength is my athletic ability, stretching the field, catching passes and creating mismatches. I’ve still got to work on blocking and being able to put my hand on the ground coming off the ball."
Player • POSITION: Tight End
• HEIGHT: 6'3"
• WEIGHT: 243
On what tight ends he's admired in the NFL:
"Shannon Sharpe, Vernon Davis, those guys, the tight ends that mostly did what they did this past season. They opened the door for guys like me, the tight ends that’s not 260, the guys that are 240, 250 that can run routes, that can catch the ball and also that can block when needed."
