Pre-Draft Analysis

Expected Draft Capital: Late Round 6/Early Round 7

Ideal Landing Spot: Cincinnati Bengals

Holker is going to be a Day 3 guy and a developmental tight end, so for him to go to a team like Cincinnati that won’t need him to be a major contributor as a rookie is ideal.

Even if Tee Higgins moves on in free agency, the Bengal shave more than enough firepower to essentially redshirt Holker in Year 1 and that is a scenario he would greatly benefit from.
