Jared Rice is on another preseason watch list.
On Thursday, the Fresno State senior tight end was recognized for the Biletnikoff Award. On Friday, Rice’s name appeared on the list for the John Mackey Award.
The John Mackey Award is given out annually to the most outstanding collegiate tight end.
Last season, as a junior, Rice had 55 catches for 664 yards: numbers that ranked in the top ten for all tight ends in the Football Bowl Subdivision.
