Summary

Rookie tight end, Kylen Granson is one to watch as a potential riser in the Colts prolific offense that features the tight end position. In the last two years at SMU, Kylen Granson had 78 receptions for 1,257 yards and 14 touchdowns. At 6'1, 240 pounds, he is small for a tight end, but big for a wide receiver and he plays more like a wide receiver. Colts head coach Frank Reich was thrilled with this fourth-round draft pick. In the last five years, no team has more touchdowns to tight ends (52) than the Colts, with Carson Wentz's Eagles team #2 with 50. The outlook for Granson is on the rise. There are still areas for him to improve, namely blocking, but he won't be asked to block like other tight ends. His ability to create separation and gain yards after the catch is what makes him an exciting prospect, especially for his size. He's a big wide receiver playing the tight end position. If he learns the playbook, excels quickly, and is given a chance to be a receiving threat as a move tight end as expected, he could have a fantasy impact in year one. (May 15)
