Summary

Tyler Higbee played sparsely in his rookie season behind Lance Kendricks with just 11 receptions and a single touchdown. Kendricks moved on to Green Bay this offseason, paving the way for Higbee to see time as the starter in 2017. The Rams drafted move-tight end Gerald Everett in the second round, but rookie tight ends are notoriously slow starters for a large workload. Higbee profiled as a high-floor, low-ceiling prospect exiting Western Kentucky as a strong producer but limited physical palette. Everett will get every opportunity to emerge with a larger role later in the season, but expect Higbee to see a strong majority of the snaps to open the year. (May 21)

Rams | Gerald Everett to have a role? (Sat May 13, 12:13 AM) - Los Angeles Rams TE Gerald Everett could be used in three-tight-end packages with TE Tyler Higbee and TE Temarrick Hemingway, according to head coach Sean McVay. 'So we feel very good about adding Gerald to that mix, and I think it will help us overall offensively in the way that we'll be able to attack people,' McVay said.

Our View: That would make a lot of sense. Everett is super athletic and a former basketball star who took to the gridiron to play football only a handful of years ago. The South Alabama prospect is not a refined route runner, but his athleticism and leaping ability make him difficult to match up with.
