The days of Zach Miller and Todd Heap racking up gaudy reception totals are long gone. During the Dennis Erickson years, while the position did some very good things with their blocking, they did little in the way of receiving.
In fact, here's a video that has put together every touchdown catch from the tight ends over the 2010 and 2011 seasons:
Yep, just one.
But, as we have featured here, that figures to change this fall. The tight end and H-backs should see an enhanced role in the new Sun Devil offense. In fact, we're quite high on the possible impact that H-back Chris Coyle could make in 2012. Perhaps Trevor Kohl's little brother, new ASU tight end Kody, could be the next tight end to find the endzone?
In any event, check out our analysis of the position and, while ASU may not be Tight End U again, it's good to know that the big boys will be back in the fold.
