Nick Arcidiacono: Not Your Average TE for Rutgers Football

Nick Arcidiacono
Nick Arcidiacono isn’t set on being the next Rutgers starting tight end. At least not as the position usually is defined.

Don’t get him wrong. Arcidiacono wants a starting role and understands he is the logical choice to succeed NFL-bound tight end Tyler Kroft after spending last season as the primary backup.

But the rising junior could wind up in something more like a hybrid position because of his experience.

“I think where it helps him is our ability to use him in some different spots,” Rutgers coach Kyle Flood said.

“He is a guy who lines up on the line, he lines up flexed out, he can line up in the backfield. It’s hard to be a versatile player before you’ve got a little experience and some knowledge of the game, so I think he’ll give us the opportunity to be very flexible with him as we move forward.”
