The news was better for the team’s four tight ends. Fourth-year veterans Nick Boyle and Maxx Williams graded as excellent blockers, with Boyle playing an especially large role in the Jackson-led offense. Third-round draft pick Mark Andrews was the revelation of the group, emerging as Jackson’s favorite deep target and making Pro Football Focus’ all-rookie team. After a slow start in the preseason, Andrews proved to be a key generator of first downs and yards after the catch. First-round pick Hayden Hurst, on the other hand, struggled to jumpstart his season after he missed the first four games with a fractured foot. He caught just 13 passes on 23 targets. On the bright side, he did show flashes of the athleticism that made him an appealing prospect, especially late in the season.
