In case you missed it, the NFL's finest blocking tight end is looking for work.
Pro Football Focus ranked Hartsock as last year's No. 1 overall tight end, based almost exclusively off his ability to chip block defenders and blast holes for skill position types. We questioned that ranking during a vibrant podcast chat with PFF's Pete Damilatis, but Hartsock still has a shot to prove his doubters wrong.
Who will snatch up the nasty behemoth?
1. Oakland Raiders
2. Indianapolis Colts
The Colts have Dwayne Allen and Coby Fleener, but questions up and down Indy's O-line make Hartsock a potential target. As does the presence of former Panthers coach Rob Chudzinski, who worked closely with Hartsock in Carolina. Besides, the Colts could use another big body to create lanes for Trent Richardson.
3. Buffalo Bills
4. New York Jets
5. New York Giants
We're sticking in Gotham: After Adrien Robinson failed to distinguish himself this summer, the Giants find themselves stuck with the likes of Kellen Davis and Larry Donnell. With Rashad Jennings and rookie Andre Williams in place to revive New York's ground attack, Hartsock is just what the doctor ordered.
