Notes:
A three time All-Big Ten selection, including First-Team honors in both 2005 and 2006...Despite fighting through a shoulder injury, Spaeth finished 2006 with a career-high 47 receptions, for 564 yards and four TDs...Minnesota's all-time career leader in receiving yards (1,291) and receptions (109) for a tight end...Tall, athletic performer with long arms...Adjusts well to the ball in the air and doesn't shy away from contact...Showed the ability to break tackles as he matured and can be a load to bring down when he reaches full speed...Lacks the speed to be a viable downfield threat, but excels in the short passing game...Limited blocking skills, but is certainly a threat to move the chains in the vertical game.
