2018 NFL Draft Prospect: Mark Andrews

2018 gets off to a flying start with the Oklahoma Sooners taking on the Georgia Bulldogs in the Rose Bowl on January 1st. There is no shortage of star power on display for both teams, with Georgia’s running back duo of Nick Chubb and Sony Michael on one side and Heisman Trophy winner Baker Mayfield on the other. But there is also one of Mayfield’s favorite targets, tight end Mark Andrews. Andrews has already laid his hands on one trophy this year, winning the John Mackey Award as the most outstanding TE in the nation. Andrews caught 50 passes in his first two years with the Sooners for 807 yards and 14 touchdowns. He  wasn’t able to replicate his astonishing TD rate in 2017 (a 28 percent market share after two years), but he was able to blow past his yard and catch figures. He led the team with 58 receptions, and his 906 receiving yards trailed only Marquise Brown (981). His three-year tally of 1,713 yards is the most by a TE in school history, while only former first-round-pick Jermaine Gresham scored more than Andrews’ 22 TDs. He goes into the Rose Bowl with four TDs in his last three games.
