Rush through the roster: #80 Mike McFarland

Posted: May 28, 2014 in Football

Mike McFarland emerged last season as a big target in the passing game. With another year under his belt and a more consistent passing game in 2014, McFarland should see better numbers in his final season in Tampa.

#80 Mike McFarland – 6’5″ 260 lbs. – Senior – Tight end – Tampa, FL (Blake HS) (University of Florida)

2013: McFarland caught 23 receptions for 288 yards and 2 touchdowns last season, ranking second on the team in receiving yards. He caught 4 balls for 32 yards in 2012.

2014 Bull Rush Prediction: McFarland show flashes of his skill set last season, becoming a more consistent threat in the passing game. He is a big target with great hands and has just enough speed to get up field after a catch. With his big body, a year under Coach Taggart and the offense, and what should be a more consistent passing offense, McFarland should see increased reception and yardage numbers in 2014. The most receiving yards for a tight end in a season stands at 390 yards by  Trevor Hypolite back in 1997. McFarland could break that record this season.
