Five foot nothin', a hundred and nothin'

Boils down to which team ends up drafting him. If he goes to a team like the Bengals with a good QB, he should be fine. If he goes to the Texans, he’s screwed.I m still puzzled about Mayer in the NFL-that league is a different cat-if used correctly he could be a star-BUT as far as college this guy is hands down the best TE in the country and if he doesnt win the award it makes the award a joke-the guy blocks runs TE routes at the college level in a predigest manner-he is the best at his position in the country period. If you make from McAfee to all the other great TE thru the years move over you are the best Notre Dame has produced at the college level.
Absolutely and he worked and coached himself into a great one-what a player and he gets that big body open while screening off the smaller guy-Notre Dame needs this award thru him for the future TE 's recruited. He's our horse.Mayer is the complete package. He really wasn't that good a blocker until this year. When determined that the way we would win is to RTDB he became much more important as a blocker and he really stepped it up. TE blocking is of supreme importance in an offense like ours.
Mackey Award finalists:
Bowers: 46 rec., 645 yards, 5 TD; 6 rushes, 93 yards, 3 TD
LaPorta: 53 rec., 601 yards, 1 TD
Mayer: 67 rec., 809 yards, 9 TD
I can't say how much blocking the other two do, but if Mayer doesn't win this something is up.
