Overview:

Lance Kendricks may very well be the best TE in this years draft. While he is not the best pass catcher, the best athlete, nor the best blocker. He is a well-rounded player that does well in all facets of the game. He is good athlete and while he may not run an eye-popping 40, the speed shows up on the field. He catches the ball well but he is also a solid blocker, especially for someone his size. He gives you the best of both worlds at TE and is a really solid prospect.
