TEs Invited to NFL Scouting Combine

Twenty tight ends were invited to the NFL Scouting Combine in Indianapolis on Feb. 17.

The five-best tight ends invited to the NFL Scouting Combine.


PLAYERS INVITED:20MORE: WIDE RECEIVERS, DEFENSIVE BACKS, OFFENSIVE LINEMEN, QUARTERBACKS, RUNNING BACKS LEADING THE PACK:Minnesota's Maxx Williams is the only tight end invited to the NFL Scouting Combine that may warrant a first-round selection. He only played two seasons at Minnesota, but was the Gophers' most productive receiver in both. In 2014, as a redshirt sophomore, he led the team in receptions, receiving yards and receiving touchdowns. As a redshirt freshman in 2013, he held the team lead in receiving yards and was tied for the most receiving yards and receiving touchdowns. Analysts believe Miami tight end Clive Walford, considered the second-best tight end in this year's draft class, could run a sub-4.7 40-yard dash at the combine. If he does, his stock will be on the rise. **
