If you’re shocked to see three tight ends in the first round of this mock draft, then you haven’t been hearing enough about the class coming out this year.
There are at least five guys who could play significant roles for their future teams this year, including the three in this.
Gerald Everett may be the third, but don’t think the separation between he and the other two is all that big.
If he’s got any flaw it’s whether or not he really should be considered a tight end at all.
He lines up in the slot more often than inline, so teams who like to use their tight ends in tight will want to know if he can fill that role.
If not, then they may wait to grab one of the middle tier talents in this year’s pool.
Everett is versatile and talented, so I’m sure the Steelers offense can find ways to use him, and if they want him inline then I’m sure he’ll figure out how to get it done.
Pittsburgh fans are going to feel guilty when they start liking this kid more than they liked Heath Miller.
