I remember a TE from the mid 1990's named Dustin Moore. I seem to remember he played about 2 years and then was dismissed from the team. I remember thinking he was one of the fastest TE's I had ever seen.
OK now I am seeing who is right. Wow so many names. I started with researching Witten. He actually only played 3 games his sophomore season and his junior seasons to reach 3rd (now 4th) on Tennessee’s all-time list. I will be surprised if I come across anything like that in my research!
In no particular order (that I would say are better)
Witten around 780 in 1.25 years
Rivera 1010 in 3 years He had a 580 yard senior season, but Witten probably would have.
Stocker 980 in 4 years
Cottam are you referring to Jeff? He only had 60 yards receiving over 2 years?
I like the ypc metric if they caught a fair amount of passes. Witten only averaged 12.64 yards but caught 39 yards in his only full year. Rivera averaged 15.61 ypc on 36 yards. He only played in 10 games that year. He may be our best all-time. He had almost as many yards as Reggie Harper in three seasons vs Reggie’s 4. I can’t find number of passes for the older guys.
I agree ..we had good te that played thru the yrs ..but then there was witten .he was best all around te ..he did so many things even if he didnt have the ball..witten couldve played def end and still went pro he was as good at de as te
