Some schools have gone so spread-heavy that they forget about the tight end position.

Others have found creative ways to keep them involved and create a schematic problem for opposing defensive coordinators. A small handful have the types of athletes to push it to the next level.

These five tight ends either catch passes like receivers, block like tackles or both.

Skinner is very much at the top of the class for the position in South Carolina. That Alabama offer should let us know that. And what he brings to the table as a Gronk-style tight end is pretty spectacular to watch. The 6-foot-5, 215-pound rising senior makes a mockery of most of the players tasked with guarding him off the line.

The 6-foot-4, 225 pounder is better known for his crazy tackling prowess, and we’ve mentioned before how much head coach Joe Call loves his skills there. But when he’s on offense, he serves as a perfect compliment to the rest of the line for a run game that tends to go power more often than its point totals would suggest.
