Pre-draft glance: Tight ends

May, 3, 2014

The next stop on our pre-draft position-by-position look at the Tampa Bay Buccaneers is tight end.

Where things stand: There’s quantity here, but it remains to be seen if there’s quality. Tim Wright, Brandon Myers, Tom Crabtree and Luke Stocker each has some positive attributes. But Wright’s not a top-notch blocker and there are durability concerns with Crabtree and Stocker. The Bucs can play mix and match with this bunch, but there’s not a true all-purpose tight end on the roster.

What to watch for: There are greater needs that probably will be addressed early in the draft. But the Bucs could look to add one more candidate to the tight end mix in the middle or later rounds.
