    Let’s look at the tight ends first.

    Eric Ebron, North Carolina, 6-foot-4, 250 pounds, 4.6 40-yard dash time.

    “Hell no,” the personnel man said when asked if he was as good as Eifert. “He’s OK. He’s completely overrated, and he’s a pain in the (butt). And don’t ask him to block anybody, because he’s not going to do it.”

    “He can run, and he has good hands,” the AFC executive said. “He could be (as good as Eifert). He can go deep for you. He probably needs to improve his blocking.”

    “He’s a player,” the scout said. “He’s definitely a first-round pick. It’s just a matter of how high someone takes him.”

    Austin Seferian-Jenkins, Washington, 6-6, 266, 4.68

    “He’s more overrated and a bigger pain in the (butt) than the other guy,” the personnel man said. “And he blocks like a wide receiver. I don’t want any part of him.”

    “There’s great size, but he’s a little lazy,” the executive said. “I’m not sure where he goes.”

    “If you can get him in the second or third round, it’s not bad,” the scout said. “No, he’s not a first-round pick.”

    Jace Amaro, Texas Tech, 6-5, 265, 4.76

    “He’s a glorified possession slot receiver,” the personnel man said. “He can catch the ball, but he’s not real tough.”

    “He lines up in the slot 99 percent of the time,” the executive said. “He’s an underneath guy. He’s not going downfield. He does have good hands, catches everything.”

    C.J. Fiedorowicz, Iowa, 6-5, 265, 4.76

    Uh oh. I guess we should trade out of this draft for future picks, when there'll be a better TE crop to choose from.

    Gonna have to get that tight end in the first or second, I suppose.
