Stanford tight ends Zach Ertz and Levine Toilolo combined for 93 catches and 10 touchdowns for a Cardinal team that went 12-2 with a 20-14 win over Wisconsin in the Rose Bowl.

Now both will be headed to the NFL.

According to Jon Wilner of the San Jose Mercury News, both Ertz and Toilolo have elected to forego their senior seasons and enter the NFL Draft.

Ertz was a finalist for the Mackey award given to the best tight end in the country. Notre Dame senior tight end Tyler Eifert won the award over Ertz and Washington tight end Austin Seferian-Jenkins. Ertz caught 69 passes for 898 yards and six touchdowns for Stanford this season. For his career, Ertz caught 112 passes for 1,431 yards and 15 touchdowns.

Toilolo served as a redzone threat for Stanford with his 6-foot-8 frame. He caught 24 passes for 393 yards and four touchdowns this season for the Cardinal. For his career, Toilolo caught 50 passes for 763 yards and 10 touchdowns.

    Bears should be players in a tight end like these guys. Kellen Davis aka Stone Hands is the worst TE in the NFL. That includes 2nd team TEs

    Miami needs to use their 1st pick in the 2nd round to draft ERTZ. It’s time Tannehill gets some real weapons at his disposal.

    Hopefully one of these guys will signal the end of the Kellen Davis era in Chicago.

    Would love to see the Falcons snag Ertz late in round 1 – one of these years Tony Gonzalez actually will retire, and Matt Ryan will need a new 3rd down option….

    ….of course, if I think it’s a great idea, no way it will ever happen…..
