News and notes: There are no surprises here. Senior Tony Paciotti and juniors Owen Daniels and Jason Pociask will all play. Junior Joel Nellis may see the field in special teams or as an occasional blocking tight end. True freshman Dave Peck will redshirt and redshirt freshman Kurt Ware is off to a second year on the scout team.
Fall MVP: Jason Pociask. Daniels may get the headlines, but Pociask's consistency and flexibility stood out.
Player on the rise: It is too early to say he is quite on the rise, but true freshman Davie Peck displayed all the tools. He has good hands, he runs solid routes and he looks like a ready and able blocker. He is also is the probable long snapper next season.
Questions remain:How will the three veterans break up reps? Daniels could be a near every-down tight end, but that would essentially banish returning starter Tony Paciotti to short-yardage situations. Jason Pociask can work in on any Badger formation. Daniels could still work in as a wide receiver as well.
Final note: For the first time since those long gone days of Mark Anelli (yes, it was only three years ago, but it feels longer), Wisconsin will receive regular offensive production from its tight ends.
Fall camp wrap, tight ends
