Vanderbilt Football 2006: Tight ends

This is the fifth of a series of early looks at the 2006 Vanderbilt Commodore football team. VandyMania takes a look at the returning players and newcomers at every position. Today we check out the tight ends.

Losses

Dustin Dunning

Returnees

Brad Allen (6-4, 238 SO): Allen saw action in all 11 games but did not catch a pass.

Newcomers

Jake Bradford (6-6, 245 FR*): Redshirted during the 2005 season. Caught seven passes for 156 yards and four touchdowns as a high school senior.
Thomas Welch (6-6, 250 FR*): Redshirted during the 2005 season. Caught 16 receptions for 354 yards and four touchdowns as a prep senior.

Remarks- Dunning was a key segment in Vanderbilt's 2005 success story. He'll be tough to replace. Allen saw a good amount of action during the season. He was heavily recruited out of high school. Bradford and Welch both are both towering, talented players that have the potential to eventually play to the level of Dunning.
