Tight ends the New Orleans Saints should look at in the 2012 NFL Draft

2 of 4

Orson Charles(Georgia):  Although Charles is considered a second round prospect, he could reach the third round.  He led the Bulldogs with 45 catches for  574 yards and five touchdowns.

Charles is also considered to be a good blocker but at around 240 lbs, he will need to bulk up to make an impact.  He’s also known for being a mismatch when it comes down to either a linebacker or a safety covering.

Ladarius Green(Louisiana-Lafayette):  Although he suffered a shoulder injury at the beginning of the season, Green finished the season with 45 catches for 486 yards and seven  touchdowns.

Green was also the NCAA active leader in touchdowns for a tight end and was selected to the 2011 All-Sun Belt Conference First Team.

While Green is a great pass catcher, he is a bit under weight at 237 lbs. and will really need to hit the weight room to add size so he can be an effective blocker.
