Tim Day TE 6í4 265 Oregon
By: Robert Davis
The Pac 10 is loaded with talented tight ends this year, and Tim Day is right up there with the best of them. Despite playing injured for most of the year in 2004, Day finished the year with 35 grabs for 457 yards, and 8 touchdowns. Day was not utilized enough this year, and his numbers suffered. He hauled in 25 passes for 215 yards, and a touchdown.
There arenít very many tight ends with a combination of size, power, and athleticism that Day has. He is a big target to throw to over the middle, and is tough to bring down in the open field. His athleticism and quickness allow him to match up well against most linebackers or safeties as a receiver. As a blocker, he has the power and agility to keep his man at bay.
Injuries may be the biggest issue keeping Day from being a bigger name to college football fans. He has missed time each of the past three seasons due to injuries.
When heís healthy, Day is an imposing target for the Ducks. He can do it all: run, block, and catch. But staying healthy has been a task for him. He has the ability to be as good as any tight end out of this class, but with the talent at TE this year, his injury past could hurt his draft position. He an impressive Shrine Game, but the depth at tight end this year probably keeps him out of Day One.
