Al Davis was known for his penchant for drafting top athletic talent who performed well in the scouting combine so in his honor, we detail the best performances in athletic drills in this year's combine.
This time we honor the tight ends. The last combine top performer Al Davis chose at tight end was Zach Miller. He finished 3rd in the 3-cone, and 5th in the broad jump. He also went after former wide receiver, David Ausberry late in the 2011 draft with the intention of converting him to tight end.
