Terry Bradway on why it’s such a thin TE class

One of the weakest positions in the 2012 draft is tight end. Why?

“A lot of these spreads are playing without tight ends,” said Jets scouting executive Terry Bradway. “That is why you love to go to Wisconsin, Alabama, LSU and Michigan State, because you get a chance to see them line up with two and three tight ends. A lot of these teams don’t even use them, and if they do, like Missouri with [Michael] Egnew and they have done it with [Chase] Coffman and [Martin] Rucker before, they play in the slot so it is very difficult to evaluate those guys. That is a concern going forward, where are all these tight ends going to be?”

The Jets are actually in pretty good shape at tight end with Dustin Keller, Jeff Cumberland (if he’s healthy) and Josh Baker.
