Here is a look at my top five tight ends at Friday Night Lights.

A.C. Leonard – 6-2/233 - Jacksonville, Fla. – University Christian - 2011
FNL Report: Leonard looked to be in the best shape of his life at this camp and he once again impressed. He has made Florida look brilliant for offering him when they did. He looked quicker on Friday than he did back in the spring and he ran very crisp routes. I never once saw him drop a catchable pass and he caught a few that shouldn't have been caught.

Nick O'Leary – 6-3/240 – Palm Beach, Fla. – Dwyer - 2011
FNL Report: O'Leary was O'Leary again and it is just nice to see someone like him continue to compete at different camps. He created mismatches all night during one on ones and he really timed his jumps well and attacked the ball in the air. He dropped one pass in front of me, but he made many tough catches in traffic. He is the total tight end who can block and catch.

Junior Pomee – 6-3/220 – Moreno Valley, Calif. – Rancho Verde - 2011
FNL Report: Pomee worked at tight end, but he looked a lot like a big wide receiver out on the football field. He is a fluid athlete with broad shoulders and good down field speed. Like Leonard and O'Leary, Pomee was a mismatch for defenders all evening. He caught a lot of balls down field with defenders over five yards behind him.

Sean Price– 6-4/210 – Citra, Fla. – North Marion - 2012
FNL Report: Price once again showed that he is a definite SEC caliber tight end at an elite camp. Like he showed me at Georgia, he got off the ball well and was able to get vertical on those that were trying to defense him. He can still work on his hands and catching the ball, but he is athletic, he has soft hands, and has a lot of room to add weight.

Cameron Clear – 6-6/265 – Memphis, Tn. – Central - 2011
FNL Report: Like I have said for about six months, I really think Clear has NFL potential as an offensive tackle, but he continues to workout at tight end and he performed well there at UF. He has soft hands and he knows how to get the ball at its highest point very well, but is not quick enough to play that position at a high level.
