Michael Egnew is one of the better tight ends in the 2012 NFL Draft. He’s a strong player who could develop into a pass catcher down the line. Unfortunately for the fantasy football world, he’s much more of a blocker right now. And blocking, as we all know, won’t give you any fantasy points for your fantasy team.
If you are going to roll the dice with a rookie tight end, go with Coby Fleener. Outside of him, I’d stay away from all the other rookie tight ends coming into the NFL in 2012. Egnew might help your favorite team win a game or two … but he’s not going to be helping your fantasy football team win any games in 2012.
