1. Trey McBride, Colorado State


McBride put up an all-time season for the tight end position. In 12 games, he racked up 1,125 yards on 91 catches. That was over a third of Colorado State’s passing yardage this season. Everyone knew the ball was coming his way, and he still dominated.

2. Jalen Wydermeyer, Texas A&M


Wydermyer has a massive 6-foot-5, 255-pound frame and uses that size to get open routinely. After a slow start to the season, Wydermyer finished with 40 catches for 515 yards and four scores.
