Here are the best options the Philadelphia Eagles will have at tight end.

Okay guys and gals, here’s your top five. Let the debate begin.

5. Kylen Granson, SMU

On an NFL field, Kylen Granson will probably look more like a wide receiver than a tight end. He’s six-foot-three and 235 pounds. Two seasons at Rice and two more at SMU produced129 career snags, 1,879 yards, and 13 touchdowns. Look for him to get snatched up sometime during Day 2 or early on Day 3.

4. Tre’ McKitty, Georgia

Tre McKitty only caught six receptions in 2020 but is NFL-ready. For better evidence of what he’s capable of, check out his tape that he created during three seasons of football at Florida State from 2017 to 2019.

3. Hunter Long, Boston College

Hunter Long can run, block, and catch. Correct us if we’re wrong, but that’s exactly what you want from a tight end. He may not be a legitimate replacement for Zach Ertz, but he is an efficient backup for Dallas Goedert.

2. Pat Freiermuth, Penn State

On some scouts’ lists, Pat Freiermuth is the best tight end outside of Kyle Pitts in the 2021 NFL Draft. He’s coming off of an injury, so it will be interesting to see what his medical report says. In the meantime, he’s a true talent that could still develop as a better blocker.

1. Brevin Jordan, Miami

Former Miami Hurricanes standout Brevin Jordan is definitely in every scout’s top five. After 105 career receptions, 1,358 yards, and 13 touchdowns tops this list. He could add some weight to his frame, but there isn’t much to criticize about his game.
