It should tell you something that more tight ends were picked (20) than running backs (14) in 2010.
Jermaine Gresham was the first TE picked and went in the first round, as expected. Rob Gronkowski was second, another likely choice.
However, the team that took Gronkowski — the Patriots — also took Aaron Hernandez, arguably the third-best tight end in the draft, two rounds later.
The Texans, Ravens and Rams also picked two TEs each.
