Now here we have a group that is up in the air.
Austin Seferian-Jenkins has the most potential, but also the one with the most difficulty staying on the field. 16 games over two years. That is well-documented. He was also kicked out of practice and coach Koetter indicated that “ASJ” didn’t know what he is doing. He has apologized, and the team has publicly moved on from the situation. Internally, they have to be concerned. Going into his third year and second in Koetter’s system, when is the learning curve going to pick up?
Cameron Brate has already turned heads in camp and might be seeing a lot more red zone time. If “ASJ” proves unreliable, might Brate jump in? Luke Stocker is in the mix, more as a blocking tight end than a receiving one.
Danny Vitale will be a player that is interesting to watch. As a fullback and tight end, he proved to be a versatile player at Northwestern. Could he provide an x-factor?
