Cardinals selected Notre Dame TE Troy Niklas with the No. 52 overall pick in the 2014 NFL draft.
Niklas (6-foot-6 1/2, 270) is a gargantuan tight end following in the Notre Dame footsteps of Anthony Fasano, John Carlson, Kyle Rudolph, and Tyler Eifert. He profiles most similarly to Fasano as a heavy-footed possession receiver who'll spend most of his NFL snaps in an in-line stance. Niklas caught 32 passes for 498 yards (15.6 YPR) and five touchdowns in 2013, before recording a 32-inch vertical, 9-foot-6 broad jump, and 27 bench reps at the Combine. At the Combine, Cardinals coach Bruce Arians discussed the importance of blocking for tight ends in his scheme. Niklas fits this better than anyone. Fri, May 9, 2014 08:40:00 PM
