The Utes have never been known for using the tight end as a huge part of the offense, but they have produced some very impressive players nonetheless. Some were excellent as blockers while others really knew how to get it done as receivers. The best of the best were able to do both.

Utah has had a number of all-conference selections from its time in the Skyline, Western Athletic and the Mountain West conferences.

Here are my rankings of the best tight ends in University of Utah history.


Note: These rankings are based only on what each player did during his time with the Utes.
