Austin Seferian-Jenkins – Tight End, Washington, 6-6, 276 (4.75)

This pick may be a bit of a reach this early in the first round, but Seferian-Jenkins is perhaps the most balanced tight end in this year’s draft class.

With an added emphasis on the ground game in 2013, Green Bay may like Seferian-Jenkins over top prospects, Ebron and Amaro, because of his affinity as a run blocker.

Seferian-Jenkins also has the size to be a real weapon in the red zone. He recorded eight touchdowns as a junior in 2013 and provides a big target for quarterbacks in the middle of the field. Green Bay needs to improve their red zone offense in 2014.

Seferian-Jenkins does lack the elite athleticism of other players at the position and may not be a true threat downfield, but he is definitely one of the more intriguing prospects going into the draft.

Both Ebron and Amaro may be off the board when the Packers pick in the first round, so depending on how desperate they are to find their future starting tight end, they may reach for Seferian-Jenkins.

He certainly won’t be there when Green Bay picks in the second round, and after the top three prospects, the talent really drops off at the position.
