Tight end Chris Herndon has the skills to make an important contribution sooner rather than later. Although the rookie fourth-round pick insists that “I’m not looking too far ahead,” it’s tantalizing to envision Sam Darnold and Herndon making sweet music together for the next decade.
The 6-foot-4, 253-pound rookie is competing with four others for the starting tight end job, but know this: The organization believes that Herndon will rise above the pack and produce in 2018.
The story said the team loves Herndon and believes he will be a difference maker moving forward. He was described as having elusiveness, nastiness, and power. Also, as the story pointed out, the TE position "has been a barren wasteland" for most of Todd Bowles' regime, so there are some high expectations.
