The Raiders have had two combine standouts at tight end in this decade. And they were both in the same combine.
Zach Miller was the Raiders second round pick in 2007 after setting receiving records at Arizona State. He also was third at the combine among tight ends in the 3 cone drill (7.01) and fifth in the broad jump (9'7")
He was bested in both categories by the man who replaced him in Oakland, Kevin Boss. He had a combine best for tight ends in the 3 cone drill (6.96) and was third in the broad jump (9'8"). Boss was also best in the combine among tight ends in the 60 yard shuttle (11.81).
