Excellent list fellas! I'll add a few more from Wisconsin. They've been waiting for their shot and I'm expecting big years from them.

Jack Eschenbach 6'6 235 (RSr.) Wisconsin

Former Walk-on from Northern Illinois. He was a skinny 200lb wideout(1200 receiving yards HS Sr yr) when he arrived in Madison. Been able to bulk up quite a bit. For years Wisconsin coaches have been praising his speed at the position. Been clocked in at over 20mph during practice. Just hasn't put up the stats and has battlede injuries! Only 5 for 59..

Clay Cundiff (RJr) 6'4 245 Wisconsin

3 Star recruit and a Kansas kid. He'll be playing more of the H-Back role this year for UW. He had 3catches for 86yds before blowing out his knee last season. Another athletic TE that has to put it together this season!

Also keep an eye on TE's Cam Large(6'5 240, Cole Dakovich(6'5 250, and Hayden Rucci(6'5 255)for Wisconsin.

i didn’t see him listed, but Air Force’s Kyle Patterson has the highest overall grade of ANY college player after 5 weeks of the season, according to Pro Football Focus’ “experts.” the 6-foot-6 senior doesn’t get many targets in the so-called passing attack the Falcons have, but he’s a dominant run blocker.

a player that i encourage the board to keep an eye on is Ball State redshirt freshman Brady Hunt.

Hunt is a VERY athletic, long and lean (6-foot-6, 215lbs) youngster with good speed and ball skills. he was a quarterback in high school, and he’s still very raw, but he has all the tools to be a good one.

Utah TE Dalton Kincaid had a monster game against USC in the upset. 16 catches 234 yards and a TD - Best performance by a TE so far this year!

This performance should be nominated for an ESPY Performance. He left it all on the field and was as responible for the win as anyone.

Those are remarkable numbers, especially for a TE! I also LOVE the fact he accomplished this against USC, a team I have hated my whole life, lol.

Don't hate SC you can get some good crack in that neighborhood. Well at least in the late 80s, worked with a summer intern back in the day and while he had been a QB for a powerhouse HS football team no real offers came in so he used his rich dad's cash to go to USC and that is where he picked up his crack habit, but the rich and famous still want to send their kids there, it must have some awesome security.

Brock Bowers wins the Mackey award. I will say that the TE position is outright dominated by White athletes.

I'm so happy that this position hasn't been infiltrated like so many of the other long time white positions have. Let's hope this
continues and then spreads to the wide receivers postion. I do believe we have also seen a slight uptick in white college running backs
which bodes well potentailly for the future.

Brock Bowers is just a physical specimen. A True Man among Boys! Love watching him play. Congrats to Brock Bowers and this is very
much deserved. The kid is flat out dominant!

My only issue is that with this position being dominated by White athletes - how many of these guys should of been DEs or WRs? I know it's nitpicking but even filtering our best athletes to one position kind of reinforces the stereotypes.

It def reinforces the stereotypes but a lot they are used wisely a good pass catching TE is the most valuable part of an offense.


Where would Mahomes be without Kelce?

He is a junior and I only saw him play 2 games last year but at 6'5" and 250 pounds Indianas AJ Barner is extremely underrated. I saw him make at least 4 or 5 unreal athletic catches and if NFL scours are worth their salt he will be starting on an NFL roster in a few years. Maybe the next coming of Gronk. MAYBE.
