Mark Andrews (born September 6, 1995) is an American football tight end for the Baltimore Ravens of the National Football League (NFL). He played college football at Oklahoma and was drafted by the Ravens in the third round of the 2018 NFL Draft.

Early years

Andrews was born in Scottsdale, Arizona to Paul and Martha Andrews. His father is a urologist and his mother works in real estate. He has two brothers and a sister.[1] Andrews was diagnosed with Type 1 Diabetes when he was nine-years old, but has been unhindered by the disease throughout his career.[2]

Andrews attended Desert Mountain High School in Scottsdale, Arizona.[3] He played wide receiver in high school and had 68 receptions for 1,122 yards and 17 touchdowns as a senior, 81 receptions for 1,494 yards and 21 touchdowns as a junior and 58 receptions for 1,058 yards and 10 touchdowns as a sophomore. He held the Arizona high school record for career receptions, before Kade Warner, the son of Kurt Warner, broke his record.[4] Andrews committed to the University of Oklahoma to play college football.[5][6]

College career

Andrews switched from wide receiver to tight end at Oklahoma.[7] After redshirting his first year in 2014, he played in all 13 games with one start in 2015 and had 19 receptions for 318 yards and seven touchdowns. In 2016, Andrews started 11 of 13 games, recording 31 receptions for 489 yards and seven touchdowns.[8][9] He was the recipient of the 2017 John Mackey Award.[10] In early January 2018, it was announced that Andrews would forgo his senior year at Oklahoma in favor of the 2018 NFL Draft.[11] Andrews finished his three years at Oklahoma with the sixth most touchdown receptions (22) by any receiver and had the most receiving yards (1,765) by a tight end.[1]

Professional career

On January 4, 2018, Andrews announced his decision to forgo his remaining eligibility and enter the 2018 NFL Draft.[2] Andrews attended the NFL Scouting Combine in Indianapolis and completed all of the combine and positional drills. His overall performance was described as solid by scouts and analysts.[12] On March 14, 2018, Andrews participated at Oklahoma's pro day, but chose to stand on his combine numbers and only performed positional drills. At the conclusion of the pre-draft process, Andrews was projected to be a second round pick by NFL draft experts and scouts.[13] He was ranked as the fourth best tight end prospect in the draft by DraftScout.com, Scouts Inc., NFL analyst Mike Mayock, and Sports Illustrated.[14][15][16]
