Top 2023 tight end prospects for the Buffalo Bills: Dalton Kincaid, Utah

Dalton Kincaid is my favorite of this year’s crop of rookie tight ends.  It’s been said he has a Travis Kelce-like skillset and whether you agree with tight end with the 27th pick or not, imagine if he works out as projected (most draft picks are unknowns) having him paired with the likes of Stefon Diggs, Dawson Knox and Josh Allen works for me.

Kincaid is 6’4″ and weighs 246 pounds.  At the combine, he recorded a 40-time of 4.71 and played only one year of high school football, which landed him exactly zero offers coming out of high school. He spent his first two years of collegiate ball at San Diego, later transferring to play for the Utah Utes.

Kincaid’s limited time in football in general means there is still untapped potential in this kid and we don’t know how high his ceiling might be for him. As a fifth-year senior, he recorded 70 receptions for 890 yards and eight touchdowns. Not only can he excel in the passing game but he did not give up a sack in pass protection over his final two collegiate seasons.

Here is a quote from nfl.com’s scouting report,

Kincaid can manage a more extended route tree, allowing calculating play-callers to open up the entire field and stress coverages.
