ESPN draft analyst Todd McShay has released his preseason rankings of the top college football tight ends for the 2017 NFL draft on Thursday and senior Jordan Leggett was #3 on the list with an evaluation grade of 75.

"Coming off a breakout junior season, Leggett has the frame (6-foot-5, 260 pounds) and natural ability to make an impact as a receiver early in his career," McShay said. "While his pass-catching ability gives him some upside, Leggett's blocking needs a lot of work. With a history of knee injuries, his medical situation will be monitored closely."

In 2015, Leggett had 40 catches for 525 yards, and a team-leading 8 touchdowns. He also had a streak of five straight games with a touchdown reception, a record for a Clemson tight end.

Jordan Leggett was named a second-team All-American by the Walter Camp Foundation, an honorable mention selection by Si.com, and a finalist for the Mackey Award last season.

The Top 7 tight ends in McShay's rankings were O.J Howard, Jake Butt, Jordan Leggett, Jeremy Sprinkle, Bucky Hodges, Evan Engram and Pharaoh Brown.
