Rudolph projects to be the only true star from this class, but overall there is a lot of starting quality depth. This class is deep in pass catchers so offenses that need TE’s to stretch the field will have a number of options. And for teams in need of a good inline blocker, there should be some decent choices in the late rounds. I think 2-8 in this class is pretty close together and see them all being at least a number 2 tight end in this league.
