Even after drafting T.J. Hockenson in the top ten last year and paying Jesse James a load of money in two offseasons ago, the Lions still need to bolster their tight end room.

Adding one who can step in and do everything from lining up in the slot and catching the football to lining up as an inline blocker and performing well, Arkansas’s Cheyenne O’Grady could be that guy.

O’Grady might be able to vie for the notoriety of being labeled a top-three tight end in the 2020 NFL Draft if not for his off-field issues.

His play on the field is quite solid and he could be able to come in as a rookie and serve as a great third tight end as a rookie. After some game time, O’Grady and Hockenson could form a nice tight end duo for Detroit.

The former Arkansas tight end blocks well enough to serve as an inline blocker regularly his rookie year and has solid enough hands to be a nice check-down option from time to time as well.

O’Grady would likely take over tight end number two duties by the end of his rookie season. If he can convince teams that he can fix his off-the-field issues, then he would be worth the mid-day three pick.
