While the Cincinnati Bengals don’t have a pressing need at tight end, it will be one of the more intriguing positions to watch this offseason, and part of that is seeing if Mason Schreck has anything to offer.
Despite having a full complement of tight ends on the roster, the Bengals still took another one in the 2017 draft. After all, injuries decimated that position throughout 2016, highlighted by Tyler Eifert missing eight games due to back and ankle injuries. C.J. Uzomah missed time due to a calf injury, while Tyler Kroft was sidelined for most of training camp and the preseason with a knee sprain.
That was part of why the Bengals used their final draft selection on a tight end in 2016. The 251st-overall pick in Round 7, Schreck wasn’t projected as a draftable prospect by any major service, but he certainly had his moments in college.
Schreck was a productive pass-catcher in the MAC, earning all-conference honors last season after catching 59 passes for 651 yards and four touchdowns as a first-year starter. But putting up respectable numbers in the MAC is a whole different ballgame than the NFL, and it was painfully evident Schreck wasn’t ready for the pros.>
