Post Spring Game Depth Chart: Tight Ends

 

The Starter:

This years Tight End spot is retained by Marcus Baugh.  The incumbent starter from last season will be looked at for his familiarity in the system, but now all bets are off due to a new position coach and Offensive Coordinator in Kevin Wilson.  The Tight Ends might see an uptick in targets, but unfortunately Baugh was held out due to an injury.  He will be leaned on by the younger players for guidance, but he will be up for the task that Jeff Heuerman and Nick Vannett established in the past.

Tight End #2:

The Tight End position was used sparingly last season, but during the Spring Game we saw an increase in productivity.  A.J. Alexander and Luke Farrell combined for 50 total yards and a touchdown, which Alexander snagged.  This is even for now, but a lot could change during fall camp.  Factor in the absence of another pair of talented Tight Ends in Jake Hausmann, who was nursing a sprained ankle and Kierre Hawkins, who was used sparingly in the game.  The Tight End battle and their usage will be interesting for the fans to watch.  Hopefully they are used more to aid in the battle to secure receiving threats for years to come.
