2. Detroit Lions
TJ Hockenson, Jesse James, Hunter Bryant
T.J. Hockenson had a solid rookie season for tight end expectations. Tight ends take a year or so to get going, but while a rookie like Sternberger is a complete unknown, Hockenson showed a lot of positive.
He was hurt and missed four games, but entering year two can already be in the discussion for top tight ends in the division. Do not surprised to see Hockenson breakout in year two as he ascends on his trajectory.
Jesse James is capable as a number two tight end. He brings height to the red zone and is adequate as a blocker. With Hockenson as the top dog, he can excel in his role. Lastly is Bryant, an unproven UDFA who had a strong year last season at Washington.
Still, this group is held down by Hockenson. The Bears hope they have something in a past prime Graham and rookie in Kmet. They hope that Kmet can have a year like Hockenson last season.
