    Explosive tight ends increase need for versatile safeties.

    By Kevin Fishbain
    MOBILE, Ala. — Teams might be coveting the next Rob Gronkowski or Jimmy Graham, hoping to find the next athletic, seam-stretching tight end that can take over a game in today's NFL.

    But what many teams are also realizing is that it might be just as important to find a safety that can counter today's tight ends.

    Gronkowski and Graham were each in the top 10 in the league in receiving and both broke Kellen Winslow's record for most receiving yards in a season by a tight end. They combined for 28 touchdown catches and gave opposing defenses matchup nightmares.
