NFL Prospect Preview: Stanford TE Zach Ertz

Zach Ertz is one of the many members of the Stanford football team that benefited from the team's success in 2012.  In 2010 & 2011, Ertz caught a combined 43-passes for 536-yards.  He nearly doubled that production in 2012 catching 69-passes for just a hair under 900-yards.  He also found the endzone a career best 6-times in last season.  Ertz, a converted WR, has the versatility that a lot of teams are looking for these days with the increased emphasis on the pass in today's NFL.

Here is my conversation with David Lombardi of TheBootleg.com on Zach Ertz

Ertz and Tyler Eifert of Notre Dame appear to be first round worthy.  Green Bay is in an interesting position at TE this year.  Jermichael Finley is playing in the final year of his deal and many believe there is no chance that the Packers will resign him.  Andrew Quarless is still trying to return from an injury, Tom Crabtree is now in Tampa, and D.J Williams and Ryan Taylor have yet to step up on offense.  The Packers could go in this direction, however, I think they have far greater needs to address.
