Mid-Preseason Grades: Tight End

CHICAGO, IL - OCTOBER 31: Zach Miller
CHICAGO, IL - OCTOBER 31: Zach Miller /

How would every Tight End grade out after training camp and two games in the preseason?

Zach Miller, A

Miller has been practicing consistently and has been playing in the preseason. What more do you need to see from Miller at this point other than health? He has just two catches for 17 yards but has shown all that is needed to be trusted on the roster.

Dion Sims, A

Sims has looked solid to date. He has caught two passes for 19 yards and looks accustomed to the blocking scheme. Sims looks like a good fit and a player who can be plugged into the lineup immediately.

Adam Shaheen, B

Shaheen has looked fine, totaling two catches for 12 yards. However, he has not quite flashed such as rookies Tarik Cohen and Eddie Jackson. He was much less polished than either coming out, so it is not concerning, but worth noting.

Daniel Brown, C+

Brown came in needing some poor Miller injury news to make a push for real playing time. Unfortunately for him, it has not happened yet and he has just two catches for nine yards. As of now, he is sitting on the wrong side of the roster bubble.

Next: Preseason Wide receiver grades

Ben Braunecker, B

Braunecker is a practice squad player that some thought could make the step onto the active roster. However, he has failed to get onto the field for any significant snaps and has just one catch for six yards. He is likely in line for more practice squad play.
