Kyle Rudolph and Other Tightend Notes 2011 Draft

Kyle Rudolph,DJ Williams,Lance Kendricks and Luke Stocker 2011 Draft

Junior Kyle Rudolph is projected as the top tight end in the 2011 Draft.
That journey has taken a detour after Rudolph suffered a hamstring injury in
the Pittsburgh game that required surgery. Rehabilitation for tearing the
hamstring off the bone is approximately 6 months. DJ Williams plays well
on his feet. Good effort to block the edge. Snatches the ball in his hands.
Good run after catch ability. Gets open in the short and medium zones.
Lance Kendricks is a move tight end who is a scrappy and effective blocker.
Runs good routes. Cradles and catches the ball in his hands. Luke Stocker is
a position wall off blocker with sure hands. Big target. Fringe speed to
separate from man to man coverage. Weslye Saunders did not play in
2010 due to a ruling by the NCAA on accepting extra benefits. Has talent, but
gave a perfunctory effort in 2009
