I think the other tight ends will all contribute. LSU will step up the pace on offense this season until games are in-hand. That means a lot more offensive plays run. If Gordon is healthy, I think he catches at least 15 passes this season.
I know Travis Dickson is coming into his own and is a good receiver. I believe that DeSean Smith is going to be a great receiver out of the TE spot and that Logan Stokes brings a solid TE skill set. I just disagree with the consensus that says Dillon Gordon won't be much of a factor in the LSU passing offense.
What say you?
I think we'll get 2 out of the four to really produce for us but Mett has to look for them. Richard Dickson 06-09
32 375 5 TDs
31 324 5 TDs
21 157 Deangelo Peterson 09-11
5 82 2 TDs
18 179 1 TD
I didn't add in other TEs, only the best we've had over the last few years. Peterson could have had 3 TDs in 2010 but he fell short by 1 yard every time.
Another thing is that you have to give these guys a year(Dickson should be ready now). I fully expect Dickson to follow in his bro's footsteps and Gordon to be heavily used in the redzone. Smith will get a few looks but I think his time is next year.
