Name: Noah Stewart
Weight: 283 lbs.
High school: Muskegon (MI) North Muskegon
Position: Tight end
Class: Redshirt junior
Jersey number: #61
Last year: I didn’t rank Stewart. He played in one game.
TTB Rating: N/A
Denegal wins the annual Tom Strobel Random Lineman Turned Into a Tight End Award, previously awarded to the likes of Tom Strobel, Trente Jones, and Joel Honigford. Coming out of high school, Stewart was ranked as a 3-star offensive lineman by 247 Sports, but the offensive line is stacked. The official roster lists a position change from offensive line to tight end, but the #61 jersey lags a little behind the position switch.
Considering how much his predecessors actually played as extra (blocking) tight ends, perhaps I’m ranking Stewart way too low. At 6’7″ and 283 lbs. he could potentially be a very tough tight end to deal with for 5-tech defensive ends – or even smaller players – so perhaps Michigan has some secrets plans to help Stewart outstrip this low-ish ranking. But until I see otherwise, I’ll assume Stewart will be mostly on the bench.
Prediction: Backup tight end
