Flash Analysis

The Cincinnati Bengals selected TE Chase Coffman in the third round as last year's draft, but he didn't contribute at all as a rookie.

Because of that, the team decided to select the top tight end available for the 2010 NFL Draft in University of Oklahoma's Jermaine Gresham.

The talented pass catcher is seen by personnel evaluators as "move" or "flex" tight end--meaning he will be moved around the offensive formation to create mismatches.
