WOLF SPORTS PROJECTION

Zach Gentry | Steelers TE

Zach Gentry (knee) is being placed on injured reserve.

Gentry isn't a big contributor as a receiver, but him being out for at least three games is a blow to the Steelers' depth at tight end. Gentry isn't expected to be out for the season with his knee issue, so hopefully he can get back for the postseason.

Zach Gentry | Steelers TE

The Steelers have selected Michigan tight end Zach Gentry in the fifth round of the 2019 NFL Draft.

A six-foot-eight target, Gentry should have a shot to turn into a significant contributor for a Steelers offense that will have space down the seam with JuJu Smith-Schuster, James Washington, and others needing attention. While Vance McDonald will remain the clear starter, it's worth noting that Pittsburgh uses multiple tight ends, and the veteran's injury history could force Gentry into a role early in his career. For now, he's just a dynasty prospect, though.
