In the FWIW column, warchant.com ranks portal players by position and rank him #2:

2. Mitchell Brinkman -- Northern Illinois to Undecided

qgpjwfarwcdwyaegbxhm
As a recruit: Brinkman had quite a bit of Power Five interest as a underclassman and took visits to Iowa, Iowa State and several others. But when it came time for offers he had mostly FCS options before getting a chance from Northern Illinois.

At Northern Illinois: Brinkman's first few years on campus weren't exactly productive as he caught just 10 total passes from 2016-18 despite playing 758 total snaps, according to Pro Football Focus. His breakout year in the passing game came in 2019, when he caught 34 passes for 445 yards and three touchdowns while playing a career high 535 snaps. He elected to enter the transfer portal for his final season of eligibility and will be eligible to play in 2020 at his next school.

Farrell's Take: "It's not an amazing tight end crop in the portal this year so Brinkman is very intriguing because of his production on the field. He’s shown not only good hands and the ability to be a safety valve for his quarterbacks but he’s a willing blocker too. He’s not elite but he’s very solid. He’s improved a ton since coming out of high school."

Impact Rating: 6.2 out of 10

Im more excited about Thomas Nance at TE. I see him taking that D'Ernest Johnson/Tyree McCants weekly thread we use to do.

I am afraid he will be more like E. Dillon (never could spell his first name).  A little smaller than Dillon and incredibly athletic like him however can he block and will this be the reason he never reaches his potential and gets the snaps necessary to realize his potential or will they just make him more of a hybrid receiver?

Looks like a good get. Productive at the G5 level last season and adds much needed experience to the group. Him and Mathis on the field at the same time would a nice combination

Good size guy with experience. Funny, wonder if they were trying for a Mitch Wilcox lookalike??   Obviously, the staff see needs and are trying to fill and build an out of the gate team. Prob want to be competitive at the get go..(year 1) and build on the younger guys at the same time. I'm hoping it works. After our past 2 years walking thru football hell I'm ready to see some quality play and WINS

Until he plays a down at this level we really won’t know if he is all that you say he will be.  He is probably going to be third on the depth chart, hope you are right.

“This level” - you think there’s a big difference between the AAC and the MAC? I’ll bet he’s the starter.
