A great guy, actively involved in the ND community still. Oh, and a dominant football player in college and the pros.

Ken McAfee. The guy nearly won a Heisman in 1977.

Leon Hart won a Heisman. I'd imagine he probably has to be in the conversation. Last two-way lineman (TE/DE) guy to win a Heisman.

True, it is really hard to classify a lot of the guys pre-70 as to where you would have them line up. Maybe a special category for Utility?

Rudolph was probably the most well rounded TE we have produced-in my time.

This is another crazy one due to the change in the requirements of the position. In spread offenses the TE isn't nearly the blocker it needed to be when Leon Hart and Mark Bavaro were playing the position.

My top 3 are Hart, Casper and Brown.

Casper ... looking at the nominees, it reads like TE-U
