The Philadelphia Eagles have selected Stanford tight end Zach Ertz with the 35th overall pick in the 2013 NFL Draft.
Fantasy analysis: Ertz enjoyed a respectable year in his only season as a starter at Stanford by posting a 69-898-6 line. He should learn the ropes behind Brent Celek, who is often injured and could cede time to the youngster. Celek is signed through 2016.
Ertz will have to earn playing time in an offense that has plenty of mouths to feed. He also comes from a pro-style system in college and has to adapt to a fast-paced spread offense in Philly.
In all likelihood, Ertz probably doesn't have a shot a returning much in the way of fantasy production as a rookie. He has a great future in the NFL.
