TE E.J. Bibbs
At this point in the draft you have to look for players you think can spend some time developing or who could possibly contribute on special teams like last year’s seventh rounder WR James Wright.
E.J. Bibbs is a guy that tight ends coach Jay Hayes has scouted and worked out, so the interest is there. He does lack the ideal height for the position, but makes up for it with natural ball skills and a solid base when blocking. While he probably will never be a number one tight end, Bibbs is very coachable and could become a solid number three tight end and special teams staple.
