INDIANAPOLIS (AP) - This year's class of NFL rookie tight ends could be all over the field.
Some are bigger. Some are stronger. Some are faster. Some are a combination of all three.
But most of the 22 players at this year's NFL scouting combine have one thing in common - they understand today's tight ends are asked to play a more important role in offenses than ever before.
This year's crop is led by guys like 6-foot-2, 250-pound speedster Eric Ebron and Austin Seferian-Jenkins, a 6-5, 262-pounder.
Coaches acknowledge that their combination of size and speed certainly stresses a defense, something offenses are increasingly attempting to do.
