Stanford's offense will be without one of its premier playmakers after tight end Zach Ertz announced Monday he'll enter the 2013 NFL draft.
Ertz, a finalist for the Mackey Award given to the nation's top tight end, led the Cardinal with 69 receptions for 898 yards and six touchdowns. He averaged 64.1 receiving yards per game.
Ertz, the top tight end and No. 29 overall player as rated by ESPN's Scouts Inc., was pivotal in helping Stanford to a 12-2 record, a Pac-12 championship and a 20-14 victory over Wisconsin in the Rose Bowl.
Stanford's No. 2 tight end, junior Levine Toilolo, also announced Monday he will enter the draft. Toilolo finished with 24 receptions for 393 yards and four touchdowns this season.
