Tight end? Ebron catches, Gillmore blocks and Fiedorowicz does both

INDIANAPOLIS–The tight end crop in this draft offers everything a team in need of a tight end could want. North Carolina’s Eric Ebron is the pass catcher, Colorado State’s Crockett Gillmore is the blocker and Iowa’s C.J. Fiedorowicz claims to be both.

“I think I proved I could be that blocker on the line but can also stretch the field (as a pass catcher). I think that separates me from the other tight ends,” Fiedorowicz said at the scouting combine on Thursday.

Fiedorowicz compared himself to the Patriots’ Rob Gronkowski, to whom Fiedorowicz bears body-type similarities. At 6-5, 265, Fiedorowicz is big and raw-boned looking.

“That’s what I’m shooting to be. I think I proved a little bit of that at the Senior Bowl,” he said.

He’s also “shooting for 4.65″ in the 40 on Saturday. It’s a time that would shoot Fiedorowicz’s stock up.

Packers.com draft contributor Tony Pauline says Fiedorowicz is “hands down the best blocking tight end in the draft. He’s a tight end in an offensive tackle’s body. Solid hands and intermediate pass catcher but not effective more than 15 yards from the line of scrimmage.”

Gillmore?

“I’m a run blocker,” he said with a smile. “That’s what I’m good at and that’s what I want to do.”
