We've definitely lost some of our TEU market share to other teams. Need one of the young guys (Njoku, Herndon, Brevin) to have a bigger presence. Hopefully Mallory is fully healthy and can show off what we've been hearing for years.

Njoku has been such a disappointment. It would seem that with that body and jumping ability he would be killing it, but maybe the head isn't on straight completely.

Oh he's healthy and on a mission. Let's hope we actually utilize him the way he should be used.
I don’t see why Lash wouldn’t. I said it in another thread. I think he’s gonna by a monster up the seam this year. Lots of plays like that one that got called back against Louisville. He’s a straight line guy with great size/speed, don’t use him like Brevin.

Ppl just be saying some crazy ****..makes u wonder if they watch the games
Alot of people who post here don't watch the games.

We did get alot out of tightends but we need more. Mallory and Jordan both cannot block at all. Mallory and whoever this year need to be tough.

If Lashlee is still deadset on an even distribution of pass/run, we need blocking tightends. Even more so if we can't get good O-line play.

Our tightends are essentially big WRs.

Tight end u? No, Pedo U

Actually their Freshman TE was/is a monster but other than that their TEs have been JAGs. Their all average NFL players that have a great year every once in awhile.

The TE U label is the only legitimate title the Canes still own and its not close.

The days of an in-line tight end who catches passes and blocks equally well are over. Kyle Pitts was just drafted fourth overall and Mike Harley is a better blocker. There are essentially pass catchers and blockers now. You pretty much want your tight end to be able to get in the way for a second in pass protection and be able to occupy a linebacker/safety type in the run game. They pretty much are just big receivers now.

Underrated comment. As I said to a Gaytor friend, Pitt's is a big ass receiver...he's not a tight end.

I agree, but their blocking could be better. Our tightends routinely miss blocks altogether.
