Today’s NFL features offenses with dynamic playmakers at the tight end position. Vernon Davis, Tony Gonzalez, Aaron Hernandez, and many other tight ends bring some of the skills and athleticism of a wideout and some of the size and strength of a lineman to an offense. The Buccaneers did not see much production from the tight end position in 2012, as profiled in the season in review posted this week. So the NFL Draft is a likely source of the next Tampa Bay Buccaneer tight end, and that means the NFL Draft Scouting Combine is the best chance to see these players on display, working out and giving us a look at their raw skills.
The Pewter Plank will give you live updates on the tight end workouts today, giving input and thoughts from the Combine in Indianapolis, Indiana. Jordan Reed, Zach Ertz, Tyler Eifert and more will be on display, and we’ll bring you everything you need to know as the workouts proceed through the afternoon.
