The Notre Dame Fighting Irish have a roster full of players, and we want to talk about them all. One Foot Down’s player profile series will take a look at every single one of them, and hopefully we all learn a little bit more about these guys, and Notre Dame’s chances for the upcoming 2020 season.

#89 Brock Wright, TE

Brock Wright is the only senior member of the Tight End platoon for this coming season. He is on his way through his last year with the program, with everyone else at the position with at least a couple years of eligibility left. Last season in 2019, Brock saw action in all 13 games. He had three starts, with two of them being at the beginning of the season when Cole Kmet was out with a broken collarbone. Even though he was in all of the games, Brock did not have many receiving yards, and he had no touchdowns all season. He did help on Special Teams, though. With Cole Kmet being the main starter and a boss at Tight End, Brock was left to play backup.

Brock is a cowboy. Why? Well, he is from Texas. But, the Irish also play the Western Michigan Broncos this season, and cowboys corral broncos. So, what I am saying is, Brock has that mentality, and look for him to have a breakout/big game against those ponies from Kalamazoo.

2020 Outlook

Brock Wright is the oldest and most experienced Tight End that the Irish have on the roster. I believe that Brock will look to fill the pretty big gap that Cole Kmet left after Kmet was drafted 43rd overall in the 2020 NFL Draft. There still is Tommy Tremble (were you there...?) who might be more of the receiving Tight End and Brock is the brocking Tight End (oh, sorry, I meant blocking Tight End). We’ll see exactly how Brock is utilized this season, but look for 89 to line up more in that Tight End position than we have seen in the past three seasons.
