ESPN's Mel Kiper ranks Miami senior TE Clive Walford ahead of Michigan's Devin Funchess.
Walford checks in as Kiper's No. 2 TE, one spot ahead of Funchess. The pair, of course, follows consensus top-TE prospect Maxx Williams of Minnesota. "Walford was great in Mobile," Kiper wrote. The 6-foot-4, 258-pound Walford logged 44 receptions for 676 yards and seven touchdowns this season. NFL Media analyst Mike Mayock, who recently said Walford is "the most explosive tight end in this year's draft," expects Walford to run a 40-yard dash of around 4.65. On that note, Kiper wrote that the combine in Indy "will be important for [this tight end] group."
