- Colby Parkinson Jr. Stanford - The 6’7 Parkinson has the tools to be just as good as any of the great recent Stanford tight ends. He’s massive, can block, and is great in the red zone. Don’t be surprised if he tests the 1,000-yard mark and catches around 10 touchdowns with Stanford losing so much of their WR/TE production from last year.
- Hunter Bryant Jr. Washington - The Huskies have been dying to keep Bryant healthy as he could be one of the nation’s best pass-catchings tight ends if he is. He’s in the mold of Evan Engram, as a smaller, almost WR/TE hybrid who is one of the most-unique playmakers in the Pac-12 and ready for a true breakout in 2019.
- Cade Otton So. Washington - Otton is basically a better version of the last two Washington tight ends who have gone in the better half of the draft the past two seasons - Will Dissly and Drew Sample. He’s already the best blocking tight end in the conference.
- Jacob Breeland Sr. Oregon - The veteran has turned into one of the conference’s best and is a balanced TE that can block and catch. He should be one of Justin Herbert’s go-to targets in 2019.
- Brant Kuithe So. Utah - Utah might have found their own Hunter Bryant in the smaller, receiving specialist who had more than 200 yards as a freshman.
- Noah Togiai Sr. Oregon State - He hopes to return to 2017 form where he had more than 30 receptions and more than 300 yards receiving. He already has seven TDs in his career.
