1. Trey McBride
The best tight end in the draft is Colorado State’s Trey McBride, who would be a dream come true addition for the New Orleans Saints.
McBride finished his senior season with the Rams totaling 90 receptions for 1,190 yards, which is wildly impressive for a tight end at Colorado State. Unlike the previous tight end we discussed though, McBride wasn’t a red zone threat, finding the end zone just one time during his 12 games as a senior.
The lack of touchdowns definitely stands out but it’s not overshadowed by McBride’s ability to get open and make plays. With Colorado State last year, McBride had six games where he went for over 100 yards receiving and never had fewer than 44 yards receiving in a game. He was the Rams’ best pass-catcher and there’s a solid chance he could continue to be the top target in the Big Easy.
McBride is a second-round target for the black and gold and if they spent a draft pick on him, they probably would not regret it. He could come into this offense and pack an immediate punch.
New Orleans needs a tight end and any of these three could help take their offense over the top.
