Michael Vick says Eagles' Zach Ertz will be one of the league's best tight ends

Don't know why this is making the rounds now since Vick said this back in October, but whatever.
Zach Ertz @ZERTZ_86 put up a modest stat line in his rookie season -- 36 catches, 469, four touchdowns. But Vick said he expects much greater things from the Stanford product in the future.
"There are three players that I told that they would be great players in this league: I always told Alge Crumpler that he was going to be great, I always told [LeSean] McCoy that he was going to be a great player in this league, and I always told Roddy White," Vick said. "And now I'm saying Zach Ertz. And I think in time, he will be one of the best tight ends in this game."

Fantasy Analysis:

Vick, who is about to become a free agent, probably won't be in Philly to watch his premonition come true firsthand. Ertz's season was actually pretty good compared to the rookie seasons of today's best at his position. Among the top 15 tight ends in receiving yards this season, Ertz's 469 yards ranks second among those players in their rookie seasons. The only person in front of Ertz is Rob Gronkowski from 2010.
Ertz's play-making ability gives him a lot of upside in Chip Kelly's offense. However, let's not get too carried away with his 2014 stock right now. Brent Celek @BrentCelek is still around, and Ertz needs to become a better blocker so he can truly turn into an every-down player.
