I approach the tight end position in much the same w

Sure James Conner Jersey , I would love to select Travis Kelce, George Kittle, or Zach Ertz, but I’m not willing to spend such an early pick to do so.I like to spend my early picks on running backs and wide receivers. This is not to say I haven’t seen what my team might look like should I draft a TE early.Mock drafts can be a valuable tool in determining your draft strategy. We know by ADP (average draft position) that Kelce is generally going in the top 8-15 picks of a draft. Kittle and Ertz about a round and a half to two rounds later.If you were to take part in several mock drafts, you can get an idea of how happy you would be with your team if you draft one of these tight ends early.The next tier of TEs is where I’m much more interested in investing in. I’ll take an O.J. Howard, Evan Engram, or Hunter Henry in rounds 5-7 in every draft. At that point, you should already have at least one starting running back and wide receiver, the building blocks have already been set. Tight end is deep, maybe not as deep as QB, but you will run out of RBs and WRs much quicker than you will a TE.If you wait until double-digit rounds in your draft to select a tight end, I’m good with this strategy as well, you’re likely looking at Vance McDonald, David Njoku Artie Burns Jersey , Jared Cook, and Delanie Walker. Sure, each one has some question marks, but there is also upside associated with each one. McDonald could be third on the target list behind Juju Smith-Schuster and James Conner, the upside is there. Will there be enough passes to go around to make David Njoku a top TE this season? Will Jared Cook be able to develop chemistry with Drew Brees?Walker is up there in age and coming off a season-ending injury, can he still be the top target for Tennessee? How good will Eric Ebron be now that Jack Doyle is healthy and should play a full season? Not to mention, it’s unlikely he’ll have the same TD to reception rate that he had last season.As for my rankings, here we go at TE.— Travis Kelce, Kansas City Chiefs— George Kittle, San Francisco 49ers— Zach Ertz, Philadelphia Eagles— O.J. Howard, Tampa Bay Buccaneers— Evan Engram, New York Giants— Hunter Henry, Los Angeles Chargers— Vance McDonald Sean Davis Jersey , Pittsburgh Steelers— David Njoku, Cleveland Browns— Jared Cook, New Orleans Saints— Delanie Walker, Tennessee Titans— Austin Hooper, Atlanta Falcons— Eric Ebron, Indianapolis Colts— Jordan Reed, Washington Redskins— Kyle Rudolph, Minnesota Vikings— Jack Doyle, Indianapolis Colts— Greg Olsen, Carolina Panthers— Trey Burton, Chicago Bears— Jimmy Graham, Green Bay Packers— Chris Herndon, New York Jets— Mark Andrews, Baltimore Ravens NEW ORLEANS (AP) — Drew Brees found a receiver who hadn’t played most of the season to sustain a late touchdown drive. The Saints‘ defense found a way to force two fumbles in the fourth quarter. And New Orleans’ punt-return unit stopped a fake punt less than a yard short of a conversion that might have helped Pittsburgh protect a late lead.Combine that with some good fortune on decisions by the officials Ramon Foster Jersey , and it added up to a third straight fourth-quarter comeback for these charmed 2018 Saints, who’ll finish the regular season as the best team in the NFC.Brees capped a 326-yard passing performance with 2-yard touchdown toss to Michael Thomas with 1:25 left, Sheldon Rankins stripped JuJu Smith-Schuster in the final minute, and the Saints clinched the top seed in the NFC playoffs with a 31-28 victory over the Steelers that dealt a significant blow to Pittsburgh’s playoff hopes.“That’s one thing these guys have done a good job with, coming up with plays when we needed it. We’ve won a lot of different ways this year,” Saints coach Sean Payton said after New Orleans (13-2) reached 13 victories for the third time since he became coach in 2006. “I’m proud of this team. Man, they’ve showed a great resolve — dealt with injuries, dealt with all the adversity you might have in a long season.”Pittsburgh drove into potential tying field-goal range on its final drive, but Smith-Schuster fumbled while landing on Rankins after a short reception and linebacker Demario Davis recovered.“One thing you know about this team is we’re resilient,” Rankins said.Alvin Kamara gained 105 yards from scrimmage and ran for two touchdowns for New Orleans. Receiver Tedd Ginn Jr., playing for the first time since Week 4, caught a 25-yard pass on third-and-20 during the Saints’ go-ahead series.The late rally came after New Orleans kept it close with two crucial fourth-quarter stops. Safety Kurt Coleman forced Pittsburgh’s first fourth-quarter turnover when he stripped Stevan Ridley and defensive end Alex Okafor recovered in Saints territory.The Steelers briefly preserved their four-point lead when L.J. Fort blocked Wil Lutz’s 50-yard field goal attempt with 6:16 left. But New Orleans quickly forced a fourth-and-5 and then stopped upback Roosevelt Nix a yard short of a first down when he took the snap on a fake punt with a little more than four minutes to go.“I just wanted to be aggressive,” Steelers coach Mike Tomlin said. “I like the play.”Ben Roethlisberger passed for 380 yards and three touchdowns for the Steelers (8-6-1), connecting 14 times with Antonio Brown for 185 yards and two touchdowns. Pittsburgh fell into second in the AFC North behind Baltimore and out of playoff position.The Steelers could still win the division with a victory next week and a loss by the Ravens. Their path to a wild card is unlikely at best because it would require Indianapolis and Tennessee to tie. Pittsburgh’s loss also clinched a playoff spot for the AFC South-leading Houston Texans.“We’re playing pretty good football Vince Williams Jersey , but it might not matter,” Roethlisberger said. “Obviously we don’t control our destiny anymore. We have to take care of business next week.“You can be as skillful as you want on both sides of the ball and special teams, but there is still a small element of luck involved in football. A play here, a play there. If that’s what it is, I don’t know, but it’s the game of football.”New Orleans went up 24-14 in the third quarter when Kamara dove over blockers at the line of scrimmage, capping a drive highlighted by his career-long 42-yard reception.But the Steelers seized momentum back with a nine-play, 75 yard drive that included three passes to Brown, the last a 3-yard TD toss. Pittsburgh then took a 28-24 led with on its next drive, which again ended with a TD pass to Brown, who split double coverage by Coleman and Marshon Lattimore for his 20-yard score.FLAG FORTUNEThe Saints’ final scoring drive was aided by a pass interference call on fourth down, marking the third Saints touchdown drive of the game aided by such a call.The first also came on a fourth-down play in the first quarter when Joe Haden placed his hand on Kamara’s back on a pass that appeared overthrown.“I don’t know what they saw. I just tried to jump up and go get the ball,” Haden said. “It’s an offensive game. You can’t touch these guys. … I’m very frustrated.”A play later, Mark Ingram scored from a yard out for his franchise-record 50th rushing touchdown Zach Gentry Pittsburgh Steelers Jersey , surpassing Deuce McAllister’s mark set in 2008.KICKING STREAKBefore Lutz had a kick blocked, he made his franchise-record 26th straight field goal, surpassing the Saints mark set by Hall of Famer Morten Andersen during the 1992 and ’93 seasons.BEN AND BROWNRoethlisberger now has 33 TDs passing, breaking his single-season mark of 32 set in 2007 and 2014.Brown clinched a sixth straight season with at least 100 catches — making him the only NFL receiver to do so — and six straight seasons with 1,200 yards receiving. He also has 15 touchdown catches, surpassing his career best.INJURIESSteelers: Nickel cornerback Mike Hilton was examined in the blue tent by team medical staff but returned to action. … Starting linebacker Vince Williams left the game in the second half.Saints: Left tackle Terron Armstead left the game in the first half, returned to action a few series later, but then left the game again for good in the second half. After that, Andrus Peat moved to left tackle and rookie Will Clapp took over at left guard.UP NEXTSteelers: Host Cincinnati on Sunday, needing a win to have any hope of advancing to the playoffs.Saints: Finish the season at home against Carolina on Sunday.
