Friday Q&A: Extra long edition

Ryan Malleck

1) Who would be our #2 tight end in a 2-TE set?

Chris Coleman: If the season started tomorrow, I think it would be Zack McCray .  However, I think there’s a big dropoff between Ryan Malleck and everybody else.  In the one hour I was at practice on Monday night, Malleck really stood out to me.  His route running looked smooth, he caught the ball with his hands, and things looked natural for him.

The guys behind him are fighting for that #2 spot.

Zack McCray (#86, 6-4, 247, r-Jr.): Though he’s entering his fourth year in the program, McCray has only spent one spring at tight end.  He’s a good athlete who can be a threat with the ball in his hands, but he wasn’t physical enough for Charley Wiles on the defensive line.  Can he be physical enough in the running game at tight end?
