Steelers NFL Draft Forecast: Tight Ends

Friday, April 20, 2001

By Ed Bouchette, Post-Gazette Sports Writer

Todd Heap
6-41/2, 250
Arizona State
1 Being at the top of the tight end heap doesn't always mean much because there aren't many good ones around. He's been productive, but he's not a great blocker or receiver. Caught 100 passes the past two seasons. Also played basketball at Arizona State.

Alge Crumpler
6-2 1/2, 265
North Carolina
2 A little short for the pro position, he nevertheless is a good athlete who played for a team that does not use the tight end much in passing situations. Good blocker with good potential as a receiver.

Tony Stewart
6-5, 255
Penn State
3 Caught 38 passes last season, more than any tight end in Nittany Lions history, including All-American Ted Kwalik. He's better at catching than blocking. He has good athletic ability but not outstanding speed.

Jabari Holloway
6-2, 252
Notre Dame
4 Built like a power blocker, but he has poor technique. Caught only six passes last season and 12 in 1999 because the Irish did not use him in the passing game much. Has athletic ability to run routes and catch but he's on the short side.

Shad Meier
6-5, 255
Kansas State
5 Decent size and speed, but injuries limited him to nine receptions last season after he caught just eight in 1999. Has shown good receiving ability, though, when he's used. More a finesse than a power blocker.
