Tight End Season Review

The unit played exceptionally well this season

NCAA Football: Russell Athletic Bowl-West Virginia vs Miami Jasen Vinlove-USA TODAY Sports

Miami’s tight end group had a successful season, producing 73 catches, 1,064 yards and 10 touchdowns.

Redshirt sophomore David Njoku led the way with 43 catches, 698 yards and eight touchdowns. His stellar performance this season to go along with his natural abilities have him pegged to possibly being drafted as high as the first round in the upcoming NFL Draft.

Here are Njoku’s season highlights by RichtEra.

Next season’s projected starter is Christopher Herndon IV, who recorded 28 receptions 334 yards and two touchdowns this past season. The junior tight end performed well when called on, and he should be in for a breakout senior season.

Standish Dobard began the season at tight end, but toward the end, he switched to the defensive line. He made two receptions for 32 yards, while playing at tight end this season.

The MVP of the tight end position is definitely Njoku who overcame drops early on in the season to have a dynamic second half. Remember what coach Todd Hartley said..
