Is David Njoku a top-tier tight end in the league?

He has proven to be a really good tight end and has come up clutch in tight games a couple of times this season, But is he top-tier?

This season Njoku had some competition at his position this year but worked hard and continued to show that he is a great starter.

Njoku is a six foot four, two hundred forty-seven-pound tight end that is pure mussel and is a hard worker.

“Njoku’s work ethic has never been questioned, one of the reasons the team’s front office has brought him in.”

This last season Njoku had fifty-eight receptions, six hundred twenty-eight yards, and four touchdowns which is good for his position at tight end.

This season was the second-best season in his career. His best season was in 2018 and he had fifty-six receptions with six hundred thirty-nine yards and four touchdowns.

“Browns starting tight end David Njoku was a standout performer. Njoku recorded a game-high (and career-high) nine receptions for 89 yards and a touchdown. Thursday’s performance may signal the start of Njoku’s breakout campaign.”

The real question is will Njoku have another breakout season or maybe even his best season yet?

This all leads to the same question: Is David Njoku a top-tier tight end in the league?

“Njoku has established a connection with Jacoby Brissett right off the bat. He is a key factor in the Browns fielding the No. 6 scoring offense through five weeks of this season. If the former Miami Hurricane is able to remain both this healthy and this consistent throughout the season, Cleveland might be a sleeper to contend in the incredibly competitive AFC playoff hunt.”
