The 90s on the football roster are usually reserved for defensive lineman, but today we have a promising redshirt sophomore tight end.

Jack Cravaack - So.

Cincinnati, OH (Madeira HS)

6’5”, 250 pounds

Tight End

2020 Projection: Reserve

Originally, Cravaack came to Purdue as a defensive end. He played both ways at his high school in his final season, serving well as a defensive end while catching a 69 yard touchdown pass in the one game MaxPreps has stats on. He even played basketball, averaging 15 points, 7.7 rebounds, and two assists per game as a four-year starter. Here are his high school highlights.

Cravaack redshirted in 2018 and last season saw action in a pair of games as a reserve defensive end and a special teamer. This year he moved to tight end, and could find playing time there.

That might be where he sees the field the most in 2020: on Special Teams. The tight end spots are pretty secure on the depth chart for now, but there is still plenty of time for Cravaack to climb.
