Miami Needs To Use The Tight Ends More In 2021

If there’s one thing we can all agree on for the Hurricanes offense in 2020, it’s that the wide receivers as a whole didn’t live up to expectations. Mike Harley had a productive season and was clearly the top WR target for Miami, but Dee Wiggins, Mark Pope and others, failed to meet expectations, and the passing game, while it improved, could’ve been much better.

In order to fix that problem for the 2021 season, one thing that Rhett Lashlee needs to do more of is increase the use of their tight ends on offense.

Brevin Jordan had a solid year in 2020, and while he dealt with injuries, he still hauled in 38 receptions, for 576 yards and 7 touchdowns.
