1) Brycen Hopkins | 6'5 | 245 | TE | Purdue
9/7 - Vanderbilt - Hopkins had a solid game, catching 3 balls for 41 yards, good for 2 TDs. He had another drop in this one, adding to the one he had last week. He did run good routes and served as a nice big target.
9/14 - TCU - Hopkins had a real good game, displaying very good route running and hands to match. He went 4 for 77 yards.
2) Cole Kmet | 6'5 | 255 | TE | Notre Dame
9/21 - Georgia - Kmet had an amazing game, led all receivers with 9 catches for 108 yards with 1 TD. He looked comfortable at all levels, was able to out-position himself against a very good secondary, especially the safeties. He moved well, displayed reliable hands and was tough as nails. He looked like a Day 2 TE in this one.
9/28 - Virginia - Kmet lead the Irish receivers with 65 yards. He did so on 4 catches, showing off good speed, route running and hands. He was able to get open a few more times, showing his ability to beat coverage. Across the past 2 games he's been ND's best receiving option.
10/12 - USC - Kmet had 6 catches for 61 yards. He was the best receiving option on his team, again looking good in running his routes and offering himself up as a great target.
3) Hunter Bryant | 6'2 | 240 | TE | Washington
9/21 - BYU - Bryant was impressive in this game. Operating like a big slot, he showed off very good hands coupled with the speed and route running to get open. He had 4 catches for 49 yards, was a beast to cover.
9/28 - USC - Bryant had a very good outing, catching 4 balls for 49 yards. He was open often, too fast for the secondary to hang with him on crossers.
10/5 - Stanford - Bryant was locked up all night, had just 1 catch for 8 yards.
4) Jared Pinkney | 6'3 | 255 | TE | Vanderbilt
9/7 - Purdue - Pinkney had a decent game, had 3 receptions for 61 yards. He had another holding penalty in this game, which adds to the 2 he had the week prior. He ran good routes and showed physicality in all facets of the game.
9/21 - LSU -Pinkney had a decent game, 4 receptions for 47 yards. His long reception of 30 yards was his highpoint. LSU had him locked up often and gave him little opportunities to break out.
5) Albert Okwuegbunam | 6'5 | 255 | TE | Missouri
10/12 - Ole Miss - Had a very solid outing, catching 4 balls for 60 yards. Once securing the catch, he showed good speed in gaining yards. He sported a solid frame, was a big reliable target that simply wasn't leveraged as much as he could've been.
6) Colby Parkinson | 6'6 | 240 | TE | Stanford
8/31 - Northwestern - Parkinson had a good game, logging 4 receptions for 38 yards. He showed off solid game speed and asserted himself as a blocker.
9/7 - USC - Parkinson had an excellent game, hauled in 7 receptions for 89 yards. He ran very good routes and displayed the ability to box out smaller defenders in securing his catches. He looked like a Day 2 lock in this contest.
9/14 - UCF - Parkinson had a good game, catching 6 balls for 51 yards. He was targeted often, made some contested catches despite good coverage. He continues to operate very well when split out in the slot.
9/21 - Oregon - Parkinson had zero receptions.
10/5 - Washington - 2 catches for 42 yards, but was able to get open a few times more, just didn't connect with his QB.
7) Josiah Deguara | 6'3 | 240 | TE | Cincinnati
8/30 - UCLA - Deguara had a great game. He was a consistent target for his QB, catching 4 balls for 53, 1 TD. He showed off good speed and zone awareness. His best play came on what would have been a pick-six, his QB throwing a goal line INT. Deguara ran all the way down field to make the tackle, showing great overall speed and hustle. He's the type of kid you want on your team.
9/7 - Ohio State - Deguara had a very good game, catching 3 balls for 46 yards. He ran very good routes, flashing very good functional speed in doing so. He chipped in as a blocker, tough kid.
8) Matt Bushman | 6'4 | 245 | TE | Brigham Young
8/29 - Utah - Bushman had an impressive outing, looking like the best receiving target on either squad. He went 6/62 receiving, a solid stat line indeed. What impressed was his ability to split out and truly operate and move like an extra WR. He played with good functional speed, ran solid routes, displayed good body control and caught the ball cleanly.
9/21 - Washington - Bushman had a great game. He was used as a slot and an outside "X", flashing enough speed and athleticism to consistently beat coverage. He had 6 receptions for 89 yards and 1 TD. He was BYU's best target by far.
9) Grant Calcaterra | 6'4 | 233 | TE | Oklahoma
9/14 - UCLA - Calcaterra had a quiet game, catching 2 passes for 40 yards. When given the chance, he looked the part of a good-sized WR.
10) Harrison Bryant | 6'4 | 240 | TE | Florida Atlantic
8/31 - Ohio State - Yeah, he had 2 drops early, rattled by the fact he was playing the Ohio State. But he cooled down, then got hot, going 6/79 yards with a long reception of 26 yards. He showed off good route running and speed, enough speed to be used outside like a true "X" receiver. There were many snaps where he looked like at worst a good #2 TE option for some TE needy NFL squad.
11) Jake Breeland | 6'5 | 248 | TE | Oregon
8/31- Auburn - Breeland played his quick outlet role well, catching 4 balls for 26 yards. He wasn't asked to stretch the seam or assert himself as a blocker, so one couldn't get a complete evaluation on him from this contest.
9/21 - Stanford - Breeland had a very good game. He had 5 catches for 78 yards, 2 TDs. He was a very good release valve for Herbert, showing good speed and route running.
10/5 - California - Breeland continues to impress as a move TE prospect. He had 5 receptions for 87 yards, was certainly the Ducks' most reliable option. His ability to threaten the seam and beat LBs was evident.
12) Mitchell Wilcox | 6'4 | 245 | TE | South Florida
8/30 - Wisconsin - Wilcox certainly didn't look bad, as his 1 catch 11 yard performance might suggest. UW was all over the Bulls and Wilcox simply didn't get enough quality looks.
13) Cheyenne O'Grady | 6'3 | 251 | TE | Arkansas
9/28 - Texas A&M - O'Grady had a real nice game. He had 8 receptions for 91 yards. He was able to threaten the seam and get superior positioning against smaller defenders. He looks to be a good move TE with some decent blocking skills if not willingness.
14) Adam Trautman | 6'5 | 251 | TE | Dayton
15) Giovanni Ricci | 6'4 | 240 | TE | Western Michigan
16) Charlie Taumoepeau | 6'3 | 246 | TE | Portland State
17) Jacob Ferguson | 6'4 | 247 | TE | Wisconsin
8/30 - South Florida - This was a very meh game for Ferguson, someone who was touted as a plus athlete with a great skill set to exploit defenders. He caught 3 balls for 20 yards, but did have a fumble plus a dropped pass. His routes nor speed off the line showed anything special, and while he tried his best as a blocker, he was barely adequate, often lacking power.
18) Luke Farrell | 6'5 | 250 | TE | Ohio State
9/28 - Nebraska - Just 1 catch for 16 yards.
19) Jared Rice | 6'4 | 238 | TE | Fresno State
20) Charlie Woerner | 6'5 | 245 | TE | Georgia
21) Stephen Sullivan | 6'6 | 232 | TE | LSU
22) Sean McKeon | 6'4 | 251 | TE | Michigan
23) Noah Togiai | 6'4 | 241 | TE | Oregon State
24) Tyler Mabry | 6'3 | 265 | TE | Maryland
9/28 - Penn State - Had 2 catches for 14 yards. He looked the part athletically, just not many chances in this one.
25) Joey Magnifico | 6'3 | 235 | TE | Memphis
26) Dominick Wood-Anderson | 6'3 | 264 | TE | Tennessee
