A flex-style tight end, Saunders is a receiver with a huge frame and impressive skill sets. You will find him split out wide in high school, giving his team a massive pass catching target, who hulks over defensive backs. He has elite skills in the passing game. The type of weapon many offenses are utilizing more of.

2. DeAndre Goolsby

Nat'l Rating: NA
Pos. Rating: 17
Location: Derby,Kansas
High School: Derby HS
Size: 6'5|235
Recruiting: Committed to Florida

He could end up being the most complete tight end in the class. He is a great receiver already putting up big numbers in the passing game the past two years. He will grow in to his frame and add the necessary weight to be a blocker as well. The Gators got a good one.

3. Carson Meier

Nat'l Rating: NA
Pos. Rating: 25
Location: Tulsa,Oklahoma
High School: Union HS
Size: 6'7|210
Recruiting: Committed to Oklahoma

Showed a good willingness to block. He has good size for taking on most defenders in high school, but does need to add around 20-30 pounds to be able to man the position in college. He uses his hands extremely and has good hand placement. He plays with good balance and control allowing him to stay balanced and stay on blocks. He gets up the field and can stay in front of LBs and DBs. Not a huge part of the passing game, but can catch the ball.

The Best of the Rest:
4. Jordan Feuerbacher
5. Kendall Blanton
6. Garrett Gray
7. Freedom Akinmoladun
8. Blake Mahon
9. Scott Schaffner
10. Stoney Hawkins
