29. Zach Ertz, TE, Philadelphia
Ertz has been a solid tight end for most of his career, but he made a huge leap to the next level in 2018, setting the NFL record for receptions by a tight end in one season. He hauled in 116 passes for over 1,100 yards last season. He’s not quite ready to challenge Travis Kelce as the top tight end in the NFL, but another season or two like the one he had in 2018 and Ertz will be close.
Of course, Ertz needs to remain at the same level season after season if he wants to be the NFL’s best. He seems to have a good comfort level with Carson Wentz, so if Philadelphia’s quarterback can stay healthy, that will surely help. The baseline for Ertz is around 800 receiving yards and at least a handful of touchdowns, but it’s easy to envision him at least coming close to matching last year’s productivity.
