2. Jake Ferguson, Dallas Cowboys

The main reason that Jake Ferguson is ranked second is he’s young and healthy, but there is another component to this. The Dallas Cowboys also know how to use tight ends effectively, so it isn't outside the realm of possibility that Ferguson is in for a monster second season.

The 2023-2024 NFL season doubles as Jake's first year as a starter. This comes after backing up Dalton Schultz during the most recent Cowboys campaign. Judging from everything that we have seen from him, which isn’t a lot (480 snaps and 22 targets), we can state he is solid.

He’s a better blocker than a receiver. He doesn’t play a finesse game and isn't concerned with looking pretty, but he does what he’s supposed to do and nothing more, just like a 2016 Chevy Malibu. Keep an eye on Cowboys rookie tight end Luke Schoonmaker as well. They're expecting big things out of him.
