Topping this years draft board are two very talented tight ends who happen to be teammates.
Iowa’s T. J Hockenson and Noah Fant top many NFL draft analyst top 2 spots.
First on the board is T. J Hockenson, who surprised many as he declared for the 2019 NFL draft. It looks like his timing couldn’t have been any better.
With the news of New England Patriots all-pro tight end Rob Gronkowski‘s retirement, Hockenson quickly became a favorite to replace Gronkowski in New England. He had a favorable combine, running a very respectable 40 at a time of 4.7 seconds, and a vertical leap of 37.5″.
