"Leggett is a former high-school receiver who has filled out into a grown-man frame," NFL.com said. "Despite playing in an offense full of weapons, Leggett found his way into 40 catches and eight touchdowns and should be able to post similar numbers this season. He's still unpolished as a blocker but has the size to become more effective and consistent with more work. Leggett is a confident hands-catcher who saw 92.5 percent of his catches go for a first down."
In 2015, he had 40 receptions for 525 yards and eight touchdowns. The eight scores tied a Clemson single-season record for tight ends. For his career, he has 66 catches for 862 yards and 11 touchdowns. He was a finalist for the John Mackey Award last season and is a first-team preseason All-American by Athlon and second team All-American by Lindy's Magazine.
The Top 10 tight end rankings by NFL.com were O.J. Howard, Jake Butt, Bucky Hodges, Jordan Leggett, Gerald Everett, Evan Engram, Mark Andrews, Jonnu Smith, Josiah Price, and Jaylen Samuels.
