The NFC North does not have an elite tight end in the division, but there is some quality depth at the position. The Minnesota Vikings may have the most complete one-two punch, but the Detroit Lions have the best duo.
The Vikings have a very good receiver in Kyle Rudolph and blocker Rhett Ellison. The Lions have outstanding receivers Brandon Pettigrew and Eric Ebron. The Bears have a pair of quality veterans. The Green Bay Packers have a pair of relatively unproven tight ends. Tight end might be the worst position group on the Packers’ offense.
Here is a ranking of the tight ends projected to be on the two-deep depth chart of the four NFC North teams.
