Depth is so good that there’s no need to panic to fill your tight end slot. To land one of the top four TEs, you’ll probably have to spend an early pick in the first five rounds, the first round for Jeremy Graham and a third-rounder for Julius Thomas.

1. Jimmy Graham, NO ($34): His stats speak for themselves (86 receptions, 1,215 receiving yards, 16 TDs).

2. Julius Thomas, Denver ($24): He was a star last year (788 yards, 12 TDs) and could be better this season.

3. Rob Gronkowski, New England ($22): Gronk’s injury issues make him a risk, but he scored 17 TDs two years ago.

4. Vernon Davis, San Francisco ($16): Don’t reach for his 13 TDs last season. He scored five and six the previous two years.

5. Jason Witten, Dallas ($15): He always makes a run at 80 catches and 1,000 yards. Last year he finally found the end zone (8 TDs).

6. Jordan Cameron, Cleveland ($12): Johnny Football’s top target is coming off a solid rookie season (80 catches, 917 yards, 7 TDs).

7. Jordan Reed, Washington ($10): He was putting up Pro Bowl numbers before a concussion forced him to miss seven games.
