Round 6: Pick 169 – Greg Dulcich (UCLA), Tight End

Tight End. Bruins . Greg Dulcich. 169. player. 836.

This year will be an important one for C.J. Uzomah. Bengals fans will hope the popular tight end can return to his previous form, having suffered a serious achilles injury in Week 2 last year.

The Bengals, too, will need to decide on his future at the end of the season. Should they move on, Drew Sample would top the depth chart leaving the rest of the room somewhat of a question mark. He’s entering year three and we still don’t know if he’s capable of being the TE1 in this offense or not.

At 6’3″ and 245 pounds, UCLA’s Greg Dulcich has the size and athleticism to have an immediate impact at the next level. He hauled in five touchdowns last year and has made a bright start to 2021.

Despite a quiet game vs Hawaii, Dulcich was the Bruins primary target as they took down LSU last weekend. He was impressive, recording 117 receiving yards and one touchdown.
