This is a very stocked 2019 NFL Draft class at tight end in terms of underclassmen declaring early. The junior tight ends in this class could bring the opportunity for some NFL teams to get immediate starters. The class of passing game targets in general in this draft class is loaded. The North Team got the benefit of a few talented tight ends on its side.
Potentially the most notable of the tight ends on the North Team is the former UCLA Bruins All-PAC-12 honoree Caleb Wilson. During his three years on campus with UCLA, he was very efficient, but never really got to play a full season. This is now his opportunity to shine in front of a host of attentive NFL scouts.
An injury-filled collegiate career at UCLA led Wilson to declare early for the 2019 NFL Draft. That was a pretty good decision considering his draft stock now is about as high as it’s going to get. In his time with UCLA, Wilson posted 1,675 receiving yards and well over 14.0 yards per catch in less than 25 games played.
Wilson is a possible matchup nightmare even at the NFL level. He also fits the bill of a new-age tight end that can really line up anywhere on offense that teams are now searching for. Walter Football ranks Wilson as the fourth best tight end in this loaded class, which spots him as a second or third round selection.
