As part of our 2022 Rice Football Preseason Preview series, this week we’ll dive into the tight end position and discuss the Owls’ plans for that group on the offense this season.

NFL talent at the position certainly makes things easier, but that’s not the only factor that might see this position group utilized slightly differently than they’ve been in years past. Here’s our 2022 Tight End Preview.
