The guy that replaced George Kittle in college could be the next George Kittle in the pros."In 2016 Womens Vontaze Burfict Jersey , the Iowa Hawkeyes lost a senior tight end to the NFL who would go on to pile up over 1,300 receiving yards and earn a 2nd-team All-Pro selection in 2018.This man was George Kittle.In 2017, Kittles replacement matched Kittles production in his rookie campaign and then doubled that production in 2018.This man was T.J. Hockenson.These two tight ends have more than just an alma mater in common. The two have similar body types and playing styles that will probably connect them for the rest of their careers. Even though the Bengals have re-signed Tyler Eifert to a one-year deal, they could bring in Hockenson to be his replacement, replacing one first-round tight end with another.Typically, when you think of Big Ten tight ends, specifically Iowa tight ends, you think of blockers used heavily in the run game who, when they are finally called upon to catch a pass, run a short slant for a five yard reception.However, players like Kittle and Hockenson are revolutionizing the position. Even though tight ends are becoming more and more like receivers every year Jordan Willis Jersey , these two are the culmination of tight end evolution. Hockenson, for example, was 65 and 251 pounds at the combine. That only makes him an inch taller and 14 pounds heavier than potential first-round wide receiver, D.K. Metcalf.Hockenson is one of the most athletic and versatile tight ends in the country, and will be an easy first-rounder. He single handedly elevated the offense of a team that is typically known for defense. Hockenson was either making amazing catches and blocks, or was drawing double-teams and letting his teammates shine.Because Hockenson had to carry the team, his production was not eye-popping, despite the fact that he led his team in receiving. If he had played in a better offense, he easily would have passed the 1,000-yard threshold. The Bengals would be a great landing spot for him, as defenses would worry about A.J. Green Womens Vincent Rey Jersey , Tyler Boyd, John Ross, and Joe Mixon.Why the pick makes sense:While hes not quite on the same athletic plane as Kittle, Hockenson is still going to be one the most athletic TEs in the NFL this year.Hockenson is an explosive route runner who can create separation quickly and easily.His route running allows him to become a viable deep threat, and as he had five receptions over 35 yards in 2018. He has strong hands and great body control to allow him to catch difficult or contested throws.His blocking technique is ugly, but more often than not, he gets the job done. Thats pretty impressive since he doesnt have the size advantage most other TEs have.After the catch, Hockenson is a strong runner and is tough to take down.The Bengals dont have any TEs that are great blockers, so Hockenson could walk in and be the best blocking TE in the organization on day one.The Bengals dont have much depth at TE after losing Tyler Kroft in free agency, which is especially important given Eiferts history.Why the pick doesnt make sense:The Bengals have more urgent needs on the defensive side of the ball. They could easily address the TE spot in later rounds of the draft.Hockensons route tree at Iowa was limited, so he doesnt have the route running ability of Eifert or C.J. Uzomah.His footwork when blocking sometimes causes him to lose his leverage. He is on the small side for a TE. His blocking and receiving contested catches might benefit from a few extra pounds.Whether or not the Bengals decide to pull the trigger on Hockenson will depend on what happens with the first 10 picks of the draft. While tight end is a position of need Shawn Williams Jersey White , the Bengals will probably only take him if their most coveted defensive players are already off the board. But Hockenson, who is a great athlete and a hard worker, will be a great addition to the Bengals offense, and Andy Dalton would be happy to have him. The Pittsburgh Steelers push for a playoff berth will go on without wide receiver Antonio Brown.The perennial Pro Bowler will sit out the season finale against the Cincinnati Bengals with a knee injury. Pittsburgh will also be without starting inside linebacker Vince Williams (toe) and safety Sean Davis, who is dealing with a quadriceps injury.Kicker Matt McCrane will make his debut for Pittsburgh after Chris Boswell was placed on injured reserve with a lower-body injury.The Steelers need to win and hope the Ravens lose to Cleveland to capture the AFC North. Pittsburgh clinches a playoff spot with a victory over the Bengals and a tie between Indianapolis and Tennessee on Sunday night.Cincinnati will play without linebacker Vontaze Burfict, who was diagnosed with a concussion last week. Hardy Nickerson will start in place of Burfict.Cody Core will start at wide receiver for the Bengals, with linebacker Vincent Rey at outside linebacker and Darqueze Dennard at cornerback.The Ravens will face the Browns without offensive lineman Alex Lewis, who will miss a fourth straight game with a shoulder injury.Lewis has been placed in the inactive list in a game the Ravens likely need to win to clinch the AFC North title.Lewis last started on Dec. 2 against Atlanta, when he helped the Ravens compiled 207 yards rushing in a 26-16 victory.Baltimore also placed running back Javorius Allen and quarterback Robert Griffin III on the inactive list.Clevelands inactives include quarterback Drew Stanton and defensive linemen Chad Thomas and Carl Davis.The Chiefs are missing running back Spencer Ware because of a hamstring injury and star safety Eric Berry because of a recurrence of his heel problem as they try to clinch the AFC West and home-field advantage throughout the AFC playoffs against Oakland.Damien Williams will get the start at running back for Kansas City. Darrel Williams, who also has been dealing with a hamstring issue, will back him up along with Charcandrick West.Top cornerback Kendall Fuller returned after missing the Chiefs previous game with a broken hand. He was still wearing a cast Rodney Anderson Cincinnati Bengals Jersey , but planned to start opposite Steven Nelson against the Raiders.Todd Gurley is skipping the Los Angeles Rams last game of the regular season to rest his sore knee for the playoffs.Gurley entered the finale leading the NFL with 21 touchdowns, but he will miss the Rams final two games of the regular season. The Rams also faced San Francisco without starting safety Lamarcus Joyner.The 49ers wrapped up their fifth straight non-winning season without running back Matt Breida and receivers Dante Pettis and Marquise Goodwin. Breida and Pettis were placed on injured reserve.The Seahawks will be without starting safety Tedric Thompson for the second straight game because of a chest injury. The Seahawks are also down starting left guard J.R. Sweezy because of a sprained foot. Sweezy was injured last week against Kansas City, but is hoping to play in the opening round of the playoffs.Newly acquired safety D.J. Swearinger is inactive for Arizona, along with starting defensive end Markus Golden and backup Benson Mayowa. Swearinger was claimed off waivers this week after his release by Washington.With rookie running back Phillip Lindsay on IR after injuring his right wrist last week, eight Broncos who started multiple games on offense arent in uniform for the finale against the Chargers.For the third straight week, safety Sua Cravens and outside linebacker Shane Ray are healthy scratches for Denver.Here are the inactives for Sundays games:CINCINNATI-PITTSBURGHBengals: WR Hunter Sharp, CB Tony McRae, LB Vontaze Burfict, OT Cedric Ogbuehi, TE Jordan Franks, RB Quinton Flowers Rodney Anderson Jersey 2019 , OT Kent PerkinsSteelers:WR Antonio Brown (knee), LB Vince Williams (toe), S Sean Davis (quadriceps), QB Mason Rudolph, OT Zach Banner, DE L.T. Walton, OLB Ola Adeniyi (edited)
