There don’t appear to be any sure-fire stud tight ends entering the 2020 NFL Draft. However, several players could unexpectedly have significant impact on their respective offenses. We break down what tight ends have the most fantasy football upside.

Favorites

Notre Dame’s Cole Kmet didn’t have the gaudiest college stats, but is considered to be the best prospect in the class. He notched 43 receptions for 515 yards and six scores last season. He has a 6’6” frame, big hands, a 37-inch vertical, and killed it at the combine. He has the tools to dominate.

Florida Atlantic’s Harrison Bryant was the only tight end to eclipse 1,000 receiving yards last season. He hauled in 65 passes for 1,004 yards and seven scores during his senior year. His 16 collegiate touchdowns illustrate that he has a knack for finding the end zone.

Hunter Bryant tallied an impressive 825 receiving yards and three scores for Washington last season. He was third among tight ends in receiving yards. He might be undersized for the position standard, but that hasn’t stopped him from producing.

Sleeper

Purdue’s Brycen Hopkins was among most productive tight ends in college football in terma of receiving yards and comes from an NFL family. But he has to get his problem with drops solved if he hopes to be relied on at the next level.

Dark horse

LSU’s Thaddeus Moss also has NFL pedigree. He’s the son of NFL great Randy Moss and could establish himself as a threat as a pro. But his health has been a problem in the past. If healthy, he can show what he’s really capable of. The athleticism and physicality is there. Moss just needs to stay on the field and build rapport in the right environment.
