The Pac-12 has had some serious talent at tight end in the recent past.

Harry How

Fred Davis USC 2004-07

A converted wide receiver, Davis was the best of the tight ends to play at USC during the Pete Carroll era. Davis was a deadly weapon for some really good USC offenses and finished his career with more than 100 receptions, 1,408 yards and 13 touchdowns.

Zach Ertz Stanford 2010-12

Ertz was the second in line of great Stanford tight ends and had an epic final year in college, playing a huge role in Stanford winning the conference. Ertz had more than 100 receptions, 1,400 yards and 15 touchdowns as a collegiate player.

Coby Fleener Stanford 2008-11

The first of the great Cardinal tight ends of their recent glory days, Fleener also blew up in his final year of college and was a big part of Stanford getting to a BCS bowl. Fleener was as much of a big play tight end as a player at the position can be, totaling more than 1,500 yards and 18 touchdowns.

Marcedes Lewis UCLA 2002-05

The 6‘8 monster looked and played like a basketball player on the football field, especially in the red zone as he finished with 21 touchdowns. Lewis was long athletic and consistent as he was one of Drew Olson's best targets and finished with 126 receptions and 1,500 yards.

Zach Miller Arizona State 2004-06

Miller came into college with sky high expectations as the nation's top tight end recruit and he lived up to them in his three-year college career. Miller played for some good Arizona State teams and finished his career with 144 receptions for 1,512 yards and 12 touchdowns in just three seasons.

Austin Seferian-Jenkins Washington 2011-13
