The Atlanta Falcons are expected to pick a tight end at some point in the 2011 NFL Draft. Tight ends worked out Saturday, with Tennessee’s Luke Stocker, USC’s Jordan Cameron, and Nevada’s Virgil Green putting up the best numbers.
Stocker tied Michigan State’s Charlie Gantt for most bench press reps with 27, which ranked ahead of many offensive linemen. Cameron and Green also made the top five among tight ends, pushing 23 each.
Cameron and Green finished just behind Florida Atlantic’s Robert Housler’s 4.55-second time in the 40-yard dash, running a 4.59 and 4.64 respectively. Stocker ranked No. 9, running a 4.79.
Either Cameron or Green won every other drill among all tight ends, with Green taking the jumping drills and Cameron winning agility drills. Stocker finished in the top ten of each.
The tight end most frequently connected with the Falcons, Wisconsin’s Lance Kendricks, finished No. 10 in the 40 and No. 3 in the bench press.
