Rutgers redshirt junior TE Tyler Kroft will declare for the 2015 NFL Draft.
"He has four credits left to graduate, which he should be able to get that done this spring, and we're looking forward to him having a great career in the NFL going forward," Scarlet Knights coach Kyle Flood said. Kroft caught 43 passes for 573 yards and four touchdowns in 2013, but fell off to 24 receptions for 269 yards and zero touchdowns this season. "He has been clocked as fast as 4.72 seconds in the 40, and how he tests in the pre-draft run-up will be closely monitored," wrote Mike Huguenin. "This isn't considered a great draft for tight ends, which could help Kroft's stock." The 6-foot-6, 240-pound Kroft is more of a receiver than a blocker, but he'll mix it willingly. He can be used as a traditional TE, in the slot, or as an H-back.
