Jared Wiley didn't break out until his 22-year old season at TCU, where he compiled 520 yards and 8 TDs (tied for first in the nation, 5 in the red zone) en route to a 22% dominator rating - the highest single-season dominator rating in the class behind Brock Bowers.
The 6-foot-6 and 249-pound tight end compiled over 25 yards after the catch per game. He's a good athlete and has the size to box out defenders. Wiley's got the potential to be an absolute red zone monster in the Chiefs offense in a post-Travis Kelce era. It m
ight be a few years for that to come to fruition.

An underneath chain mover. Wiley was utilized on outs, screens, and stop routes, mostly at TCU. He uncovers quickly and has decent fluidity to his routes, but he won't be a prioritized piece of a passing attack in the NFL. Wiley isn't a strong tackle breaker or YAC generator. With only five missed tackles forced in five seasons of collegiate football, he is a known catch-and-fall-down type. Wiley can chip a defender on his way out for a route, but he isn't a strong pass protector at this point. He sets up high on many of his pass protection reps, which allows rushers to get on an easy path under his pads. He has the functional strength to hold his spot at times, but you won't see him blowing anyone off the ball. Dynasty Outlook: The Kansas City Chiefs selected Wiley in the fourth round of the NFL Draft. The draft capital was a nice surprise, but I'm only mildly intrigued with him as a taxi squad player despite the landing spot. We played this same game with Noah Gray, and look how that turned out. Travis Kelce just signed a lucrative extension, and the team has spent significant draft capital on the wide receiver position over the last two years. Wiley will be lucky to see the field this season. Avoid him in rookie drafts.
