Preview: Top 2014 Underclassmen Tight Ends

By Draft Lead Writer Philip Arnold- On Twitter @PhilipArnold20 give him a follow for continued PFC Draft Coverage.

We’ve finished previewing our top 2014 Seniors at each position. We now look into the Draft Eligible Underclassmen at the Tight End position. My initial thoughts on this group aren’t too high. This is probably the thinnest of the position groups we have previewed thus far. Seferian-Jenkins from Washington is the clear cut number one prospect of the underclassmen Tight Ends. Lyerla and Ebron are guys that can make a splash if they have successful 13-14 seasons’. USC and North Carolina boast two prospects on this list, but will be battling with one another for production numbers. Koyack will see more time this year after the graduation of first round selection Tyler Eifert. A small school prospect but is a name to keep an eye on is Leonard. After transferring from Florida to Tennessee State, he was voted as one of the top FCS Tight Ends in 2012.
