Will the tight end game be more present?
Stanford is tied with UCLA and Wisconsin for the most tight ends currently on NFL rosters. Last year, Cardinal tight ends caught 10 passes for 69 total yards. The team focused more on 6-foot-4, 232-pound wide receiver Devon Cajuste controlling the middle of the field in the pass game. Look for that to change in 2014 with as many as five returning players -- three coming off of redshirt seasons -- seeing time in Stanford's heralded three-tight end sets. In the summer, the nation's No. 1 high school tight end Dalton Schultz will also join the mix, adding further depth and athleticism. If David Shaw thinks that competition brings out the best in players, he should see a better tight end group this fall.
