Through 2 years in the NFL since being taken in the 5th round of the 2007 Draft, Brent Celek has not accomplished a great deal of statistical acheivements, but has steadily taken over the starting Tight End position. Helped in part by inconsistency and injuries from former starter L.J. Smith, Celek has seen an ever-increasing amount of opportunities which he's taken advantage of.
"I'm just going to keep preparing the way I've been preparing," Celek said in regards to continuous fan statements questioning his ability. "I know there are people out there that still doubt me to this day. That's fine. I love that. Because it makes me work even harder. I just hope I can play good and help this team win football games." Part of the reason fans may do such a thing and not completely trust that he will be a productive starter could be because of the addition of highly-ranked Cornelius Ingram through the Draft.
But despite the hype that surrounds Ingram, and his impressive play in mini-camps, Celek (see picture) remains the top man on the depth chart, and is not only expecting to be the best Tight End on the team, but he is also taking big steps to making this hope a reality.
