- Mychal Rivera, Tennessee. A strong Wednesday practice pushed him past Vance McDonald as the best tight end candidate, but it took a little time. Like McDonald, he's a downfield receiving threat pretty much in the mold of Aaron Hernandez, albeit without the girth.

3. Mychal Rivera, Tennessee - Not very heralded among draft experts, but the UT product is the most natural receiving tight end of the group. He has the best hands and proved he could go up and snag the ball out of the air in tight spots. Rivera's route-running and blocking needs work, but he may fit somewhere down the line in today's pass-first NFL.
