The NFL combine and pro days are in the books. We’ve compiled scout-based rookie rankings. And we’ve created or updated predictive models for QB success, RB success, WR success, and TE success. Now it’s time for the RotoViz analysts to compile our pre-draft rookie tight end rankings.
Pre-Draft Rookie Tight End Rankings
These ranks were compiled over the past week by our group of analysts. After rankings were submitted, those ranks were scored using the same methodology as the RotoViz Scouting Index.
Here’s how the top rookie TEs fared on the basis of their positional score.
O.J. Howard and David Njoku are neck-and-neck at the top. Evan Engram and Bucky Hodges form the next tier, while Jonnu Smith, Gerald Everett, and Adam Shaheen form the third tier.

This table compares each TEs rank in the RotoViz Scouting Index to our internal Rookie Rankings. You can sort by the “Difference” column to see which players we like more or less than the scouting community.
