The tight end in college football isn't the factor it is in the NFL and many times it's more of a hybrid wide receiver or H-Back situation. Some college offenses don't require a traditional tight end, but the Pac-12 typically produces talent at the position, with Stanford being the leaders in that category.

Bryant comes in as a true freshman with a chance to get on the field and make plays, particularly in the red zone. How he picks up the playbook and meshes with QB Jake Browning in August may dictate his early production.
Schultz is the returning leader for receptions at the position with 23 and tallied 223 yards and a score. If the QB position is solidified from the start this season, Schultz is a lock to be more involved. Freshman Colby Parkinson's presence may help more than hurt Schultz's production.
