Top Five Tight End Battles

Maybe Harbaugh'll just ceremonially flip a coin
Baltimore Ravens: Ed Dickson vs. Dennis Pitta

Make no mistake, both men will get their reps if they stay healthy in 2012.

Together, they combined for 94 catches, 933 yards and 8 touchdowns last season.

Dickson had the better output by about a 1.5-to-1 ratio, but he was also the full-time starter.

That seems to show that Pitta, one of the surprises of 2011, is developing into one of Joe Flacco’s favorite targets.

Pitta’s edge will be his superior blocking skills, which will come in handy for a team that has a) Ray Rice, and b) an offensive line that’s declined from a year ago.
