2021 could be a huge year for Detroit Lions tight end TJ Hockenson. Even though he’s already coming out of one Pro Bowl season, many expect him to take his game to a new level in the coming season. With a new offensive system in place, a budding relationship with quarterback Jared Goff and a lack of other reception options around him, Hockenson could be one of the focal points of this offensive attack.
NFL.com’s Nick Shook also predicts big things for Hockenson’s future as he built the Lions’ tight end on his 2021 All-Under-25 team and only includes players who will be under 25 when the regular season starts on September 9th. .
“Currently, he is the best tight end under 25, and it may not be long before he is considered one of the leading players in the position, regardless of age,” Shook wrote.
No other lions came on the list, but another was considered. Punter Jack Fox, who is currently 24 years old, was almost the selection, but Shook went instead with Patriots punter Jake Bailey, who was the first team All Pro last year.
