In April, Arizona Cardinals General Manager Steve Keim drafted Colorado State TE Trey McBride in the second round (55th overall) after a record-breaking season.
McBride set school records in receptions and yards for a tight end.
On Tuesday, the Mountain West Conference selected Trey McBride as the Male Athlete of the Year.
McBride, 22, garnered the John Mackey Award as the nation's top tight end. He led the FBS with 90 receptions, 1,121 yards receiving, averaged 93.4 yards per game and one touchdown. He became the third athlete from CSU to earn those honors.
He enters a Cardinals tight end room with Zach Ertz and Maxx Williams. Ertz, 31, was acquired via trade last October. Williams is still recovering from reconstructive knee surgery. McBride should see a healthy amount of reps during training camp and the regular season as he looks to build chemistry with Kyler Murray and the rest of the offense.
It will be intriguing to see how Head Coach Kliff Kingsbury will integrate the 6'4" 250 pound offensive weapon into the offense this season.
