BOULDER – Taylor Embree knows tight ends.
He comes from San Francisco, where he worked with All-Pro tight end George Kittle. Kittle entered the NFL three years ago as a fifth-round draft pick. Whether his growth into being one of the absolute best at the position should be credited to coaching or self-development is unknown, but what we do know is that Embree was there to watch the process.
Now Embree is Colorado’s tight ends coach and he knows what he wants out of his group.
“It’s funny because George Kittle is putting a lot of pressure now on tight ends,” Embree said.
