The sophomore is climbing the depth chart.

Today’s player has mostly been a reserve so far, but he was a stud in our virtual season last year.

Kyle Bilodeau - So.

Mechanicsville, VA (Woodberry Forest HS)

6’5”, 250 pounds

Tight End

2021 Projection: Reserve

So far Bilodeau has played in just four games during his two years on campus. He served as a blocking tight end in four games in 2019 and did not play last year. As a senior in high school though he was a prime target with 34 receptions for 455 yards and three touchdowns.

Then you have our now forgotten virtual season. I used him as a goal line target and he finished with 26 catches for 213 yards and 7 TDs. He also had a rushing TD as a fullback. That means he was a big reason why Purdue was 11-1 last year.

Seriously though, Bilodeau provides some solid depth behind Payne Durham and Garrett Miller at the tight end position.
