The Under Armour/Scout.com Combine hit South Florida this past Saturday and many of the state's premier prospects were there. A lot of kids put themselves on the recruiting map with their strong performances. Lets take a closer look at some of the top tight ends at the event.

Top Performer:
Paul Freedman -- At 6-5.5 and 224 pounds, Freedman's 4.87/40 time was the most impressive of any tight end at the event. His testing numbers were probably the best but then he went on to catch every ball thrown his direction. Known as having good hands, Freedman answered a lot of questions about his speed and soldified himself as a three-star prospect on Saturday.

Other Standouts:
Joseph Fitzpatrick -- At 6-3 and 213 pounds, he's not the biggest tight end around but he tested pretty well and had a solid day to show people that he can be considered a legit Division 1 prospect.

Sleeper:
Gabe Holmes -- Arguably the top prospect of all the tight ends at this event, Holmes hasn't been playing football very long. He grew up playing basketball so it shouldn't be a surprise that at 6-4.5, he jumped 35 inches. He's got all the athletic tools and just has to continue developing as a pass-catcher. His best days are way in front of him and he's a very interesting prospect for the Raiders this season.
