COLUMBIA - Michael Egnew was named to the Mackey Award watch list on Thursday. The Missouri tight end was a finalist for the award last year. Arkansas' DJ Williams won the Mackey Award last year.

In recent years, the tight end position has been strong for the Tigers. Chase Coffman won the award in 2008, while Martin Rucker was a finalist in 2007.
