Friday, ESPN's Matt Williamson released his list ranking who had the best TE group in the AFC South. Here is a quick look.
Williamson’s AFC South tight end rankings:
1) Colts (Coby Fleener, Dwayne Allen, Justice Cunningham)
2) Titans (Delanie Walker, Craig Stevens, Taylor Thompson)
3) Texans (Owen Daniels, Garrett Graham, Ryan Griffin)
4) Jaguars (Marcedes Lewis, Isaiah Stanback)
A summary of Paul Kuharsky's comments can be found here, and he has some interesting takes on the list.
Personally, I think it really depends on your classification for the rankings. In terms of pure ability at the position I would rank Tennessee #1. As a group, they are the only team with three viable starting options. In their scheme any of the top three guys could probably shine.
Also, they have the most well-rounded group. Walker, Stevens and Thompson are all capable pass catchers that are punishing blockers. The Titans could very well run an offense with where Walker and Stevens are in-line blockers and Taylor Thompson is at FB. Then, they could shift those pieces around to get easy match ups.
Overall I would rank them: Titans, Colts, Texans, Jaguars and in terms of upside I think Coby Fleener and Taylor Thompson are in a dead heat.
