The tight end position may be one of the most underrated positions on the football field.
A tight end's assignment can change from play-to-play. There is not just one thing they specialize in like other football positions. 
Mississippi State tight end coach Scott Sallach is well aware of this with his guys.
"Outside of Tyler Russell, the people who have to know the most of what's going on are the tight ends," Sallach said. "They're not really tight ends. They're wide receivers, they're running backs, they're offensive lineman, they protect, they're in the run game, they've got routes, (and) they have to recognize coverages, blitzes and fronts. You have to be a special individual to sit in my meeting room."
