NFL Draft Rumors: Marcel Jensen works out for Falcons, Colts, meets with Patriots, Eagles


Most of the talk regarding the tight end position in the 2014 NFL Draft  surrounds former North Carolina Tar Heels’ star Eric Ebron, former Washington Huskies’ pass-catcher Austin Seferian-Jenkins and former Texas Tech Red Raiders’ standout Jace Amaro.

Former Fresno State Bulldogs’ tight end Marcel Jensen has been lost in the shuffle.

That doesn’t mean there isn’t a lot of interest in him.

According to Aaron Wilson of The Baltimore Sun and The National Football Post, Jensen “has worked out for the Atlanta Falcons and the Indianapolis Colts and had private meetings with the New England Patriots and Philadelphia Eagles surrounding his Pro Day workout.”

Every team involved likes to use the tight end and could use an upgrade, especially the Falcons, who lost future Hall-of-Famer Tony Gonzalez to retirement and the Patriots, who don’t know when they will be getting Pro Bowler Rob Gronkowski back from injury.

The 6’6, 264-pound Jensen made 26 receptions for 353 yards and three touchdowns last season and had 48 catches for 708 yards and eight touchdowns in his career.
