2017 pre-season Pac-12 tight end rankings: USC’s Daniel Imatorbhebhe best in Pac-12

Ranking the Pac-12’s best tight ends going into 2017

Quarterbacks

Running Backs

Receivers

  1. Daniel Imatorbhebhe So. USC

The best pass catching tight end and Florida transfer blew up late in the season. He was crucial in USC’s win at Washington.

2. Dalton Schultz Sr. Stanford

He hasn’t turned into Zach Ertz or Austin Hooper like he was supposed to yet, but he is the most-talented tight end in the conference and could break out this year.

3. Austin Roberts Jr. UCLA

A hybrid tight end with receiver skills who cracked the 100-yard mark against Arizona State last year, something I don’t think another returning Pac-12 tight end ever did.

4. Ray Hudson Sr. Cal

Steady and consistent, another hybrid who is a great receiving threat. He caught three touchdowns in 2016.

5. Caleb Wilson So. UCLA

Rangy at 6’5 235, he turned it up late in the season and ended with more than 200 yards receiving. Will be a nice target for Josh Rosen.

6. Will Dissly Sr. Washington

Doesn’t catch the ball much, but is probably the best blocking tight end in the conference. Close to a sixth offensive linemen when out there.
