2012 blocking TE's


Recommended Posts

Kevin Koger, TE, Michigan

Height: 6-3. Weight: 262.

Projected 40 Time: 4.75.

Projected Round (2012): 4-5.

1/24/11: Koger is a sleeper prospect who helped his draft stock with a strong week at the East-West Shrine. He had 23 receptions for 244 yards and four touchdowns this year. Koger did a good job blocking for Denard Robinson, and could have had better receiving numbers if Michigan had possessed a better passing offense. In the All-Star game, Koger worked well in seam routes while also doing a nice job blocking.



George Bryan, TE, N.C. State

Height: 6-5. Weight: 265.

Projected 40 Time: 4.77.

Projected Round (2012): 4-5.

1/24/11: Bryan had 33 receptions for 331 yards and four touchdowns in 2011. He was a good blocker this year and could be one of the better blocking tight ends in this draft class. Bryan showed some receiving skills in the East-West Shrine workouts and that helped his stock.



Philip Lutzenkirchen, TE, Auburn

Height: 6-5. Weight: 250.

Projected 40 Time: 4.70.

Projected Round (2012): 4-5.

1/24/11: Lutzenkirchen had 24 receptions for 238 yards and seven touchdowns in 2011. He was a quality blocker for Auburn running back Michael Dyer. Lutzenkirchen was a second-team All-SEC selection this year.



Michael Williams, TE, Alabama

Height: 6-6. Weight: 270.

Projected 40 Time: 4.77.

Projected Round (2012): 4-6.

1/24/11: Williams is a good blocking tight end, and he was a part of the potent ground game that leads Alabama. Williams made 16 receptions for 191 yards and two scores in 2011.



Jake Stoneburner, TE, Ohio State

Height: 6-5. Weight: 245.

Projected 40 Time: 4.71.

Projected Round (2012): 5-6.

1/24/11: Stoneburner had 14 receptions for 193 yards and seven touchdowns in 2011. Three of those touchdowns came in the first game against Akron. Stoneburner could have been even more productive if Ohio State had had some consistency at quarterback. He has some blocking potential as well.



DC Jefferson, TE, Rutgers

Height: 6-6. Weight: 258.

Projected 40 Time: 4.77.

Projected Round (2012): 5-7.

1/24/11: Jefferson was quiet with 12 catches for 118 yards. He projects as a backup and blocking tight end in the NFL.



Brian Linthicum, TE, Michigan State

Height: 6-4. Weight: 249.

Projected 40 Time: 4.74.

Arm: 33 5/8. Hand: 9 3/4.

Projected Round (2012): 5-7.

1/24/11: Linthicum was quiet for a lot of the 2011 season. He pulled in only 31 receptions for 364 yards, but did a quality job as a blocker. In the Outback Bowl, Linthicum played well with seven receptions for 115 yards. He was a second-team All-Big Ten selection.



Brandon Barden, TE, Vanderbilt

Height: 6-5. Weight: 250.

Projected 40 Time: 4.75.

Projected Round (2012): 6-7.

1/24/11: Barden recorded 16 catches for 243 yards and a touchdown this season. The redshirt senior has the potential to be a blocking tight end in the NFL if he can add some more power and bulk.



Anthony Miller, TE, California

Height: 6-4. Weight: 260.

Projected 40 Time: 4.70.

Projected Round (2012): 7-FA.

1/24/11: Miller had 24 receptions for 263 yards and three touchdowns. His draft stock takes a hit from the team working the ball to wide receivers Keenan Allen and Marvin Jones. Miller has the size to be a good blocker.

This is one position I can really see them use a draft pick on, but it would have to be someone who is a great blocker, not one who is described as merely good or has potential to become a blocking TE.


Michael Williams or DC Jefferson perhaps.

Josh Chichester


Ht:6-8 Wt:240 lbs


Chichester had a quality season for Lousiville. He needs to improve his blocking for the NFL, but has some receiving potential. For the 2011 season, Chichester pulled in 28 receptions for 393 yards and two touchdowns. He was not at the Combine.


Josh Chichester caught 22 balls for 317 yards and five touchdowns in 2010 in his first season as a tight end. Formerly he played wide receiver, catching 17 receptions for 202 yards and two touchdowns in '09, and 30 catches for 341 yards and two touchdowns in '08. Obviously, Chichester has the physical tools to be a receiving tight end, and it will be interesting to see if he is able to be an adequate blocker. Chichester certainly has the frame to add muscle.


I only bring him up because I saw he might be a good sleeper. That said decent finesse blocker. Nice as a receiver. Maybe he is turned back into a WR.
