2017

A sixth-round pick in 2016 despite the fact that he hadn't played organized football since high school, Gathers is an athletic monster who spent his college career at Baylor as a power forward on the basketball team. His size and leaping ability potentially make him uncoverable, while getting to watch and learn from Jason Witten has allowed him to grasp the finer points of being an NFL tight end more quickly than expected. His targets will still be limited as long as Witten is around, but Gathers could emerge as a red-zone weapon this season.
