Pitta clocks in as the only tight end to make the list, but don't let the position fool you. The Fresno, Calif., native had a career that would make most wideouts jealous.
Pitta's 221 receptions are the most in BYU history and sixth all-time for the conference. He was a three time All-MWC honoree and was a consensus All-American in 2009.
Pitta was selected by the Baltimore Ravens in the fourth round of the 2010 draft.
I understand Urlacher only played a year in the conference, but 8 is too low for a guy who did it all in ABQ. Really can't argue with anyone else . . .
It's crap that Bradlee Van Pelt isn't on this list. I believe along with Dalton he is the only other play to win two play of the year awards in the MWC.

Thanks Catch. I'll say that if BSU was in the MWC forMoore's four years (or probably even 3 out of the 4), he would have dropped Smith to #2. Moore was incredible, but 75% of his career was in a different conference--including his best season.
An intelligent, well thought out list. Would be easy to put someone like Moore higher (he may deserve it) and forget guys like Hughes and Weddle. Of course, had Boise been in the MWC earlier, this list would look a lot different.
