Gresham could warrant late-round attention

The Bengals haven’t had a solid pass-catching tight end since the days of Tony McGee, but the addition of Jermaine Gresham with the 21st overall selection changes that heading into next season.

Gresham is an athletic player with great vertical skills and Pro Bowl potential, according to NFL Network’s Mike Mayock. He’ll give Carson Palmer an attractive option in the middle of the field and should help keep defenses honest when it comes to covering Chad Ochocinco and Antonio Bryant.

I don’t see him as a No. 1 fantasy tight end as a rookie, but Gresham will be worth a late-round flier as a No. 2 option in most leagues.
