After this season, Baylor loses two seniors at the TE position: Jordan Najvar, who transferred from Stanford, and Jerod Monk, a converted QB who has made the position his own. Today, we're projecting the former's production in the first year of the Bryce Petty Era. How do you think he'll do? Give me:
Receptions / Yards / Touchdowns
That's it. That's all I need. Blocking stats for offensive linemen and tight ends are notoriously hard to find, so I thought we'd keep it simple. Here is Najvar's career at Baylor:
In doing this, remember that it is Bryce Petty's first year as a starter. In RGIII's first year, Justin Akers and Brad Taylor caught 22 passes between them, a fair bit more than Najvar's 10 last year. Still, ours is hardly a TE-heavy offense, so I wouldn't project a Jason Witten-type year.
