Tallying up Cal’s projected tight ends

For the Bears, this makes sense as a 6’3’’, 245-pound Hudson is a big body presence who can handle the block and also make moves on a pass. He is a veteran who has played in 34 games with nine starts as a Bear, and in 11 games last season he racked up 165 receiving yards and three touchdowns.
