I ranked Neff #116 and said he would be a backup tight end (LINK). He did not play in any games.
TTB Rating:
N/A

Neff is an undersized tight end at 6’2″ and 237 lbs. So chances for him to get on the field are pretty slim. Michigan has also stacked up a pretty talented tight end room with a couple starter-quality seniors and several 4-star backups. Perhaps Neff can help replicate a fullback on the scout team or play on special teams, but as for playing time on offense, I wouldn’t expect to see #80 out there much at all.

Prediction: Backup tight end

Neff is a 6’2″, 234 lb. tight end at Michigan. It’s not often that 6’2″ tight ends play at Michigan. (My mind goes back to Aaron Shea, who was listed at 6’5″ at Michigan and turned out to be 6’3″.)

If only Neff were 6’8″, the coaching staff would draw up Wildcat passes for him on the goal line.

Instead, Neff’s best chance for playing time is probably on special teams.

Prediction: Backup tight end
