2012 NFL Combine: Missouri's Michael Egnew Makes His Way To Indianapolis

The 2012 NFL Combine kicks into gear on Wednesday, and it will first welcome a trio of position groups to Lucas Oil Stadium. Amongst them will be the tight ends, and Michael Egnew of the Missouri Tigers will be looking to make an impression on scouts as the draft nears.

Egnew is rated by nfldraftscout.com as the No. 6 overall tight end in the draft, and they have him projected as a fourth round pick. But Egnew will certainly have a chance to improve his stock this week, and with historic seasons in 2012 by tight ends like Rob Gronkowski and Jimmy Graham, teams may be paying more attention to the tight end position than ever.

Egnew will be going up against some stiff competition though, including tight ends like Dwayne Allen of the Clemson Tigers and Orson Charles of the Georgia Bulldogs, both of whom may be able to work themselves into the first round.

For updates, stay tuned to SB Nation St. Louis. For more details on the upcoming 2012 NFL Draft, be sure to drop by Mocking the Draft.
